SEATTLE METRO CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
A Message from Markham McIntyre.
Executive Vice President.
Thank you for your interest in the Keep Workers Healthy & Safe fund. We know there are many opportunities to help and we believe this fund has the capacity to provide critical assistance to a large number of small businesses in the region. We are proud to say that 100% of funds donated will go directly to small businesses.
The fund has two main goals: to keep healthcare coverage intact for employees through April 2020, whether they have employer-sponsored benefits or receive subsidies for health insurance and keeping employees safe by reimbursing employers for janitorial services, protective equipment, and cleaning supplies. We want to help vulnerable businesses and help ensure their workers are safe and healthy during the crisis.
Whether you are in a position to donate or are applying to the fund – thank you. We know that many are experiencing major impacts from the rapid action our community must take to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. We are doing our part to help buffer that impact.
These are not easy times, but I know our community can and will stick together.
