The Chandler Chamber of Commerce, through a contract with the city of Chandler, will distribute personal protective equipment kits to Chandler businesses who qualify in a program launching in mid-October, according to a news release from the Chandler Chamber of Commerce.

The Chandler City Council authorized the use of $500,000 of Arizona CARES Act funding for the purchase and distribution of personal protective equipment to Chandler businesses to help business owners and protect the public during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“Protecting public health has been Council’s top priority throughout the pandemic,” Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke said in the news release. “The I Choose Chandler PPE Kit Program is another way the City continues to create innovative programs to keep employees and patrons safe, while providing much needed assistance to our business community.”

The kits consist of the following: two boxes of 50 each three-ply nonmedical face masks with ear loops, one automatic dispenser with stand and 1 gallon of hand sanitizer.

“This is a great way to make sure our local businesses have the tools necessary to keep employees and clients within safety guidelines, ensuring a path forward to carry out business as usual," said Terri Kimble, president and CEO of the Chandler Chamber of Commerce in a news release. "The kits are on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be available until supplies are gone.”


Chandler businesses must meet the following criteria to be eligible for a kit:

  • Be a registered business with the city of Chandler

  • Have 100 or less employees


Nonprofits, home-based businesses, vacation rentals, rentals of commercial property, internet-based businesses, kiosks or vending businesses, and car service providers are excluded from qualifying, according to the news release.
