Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt has, over the last few days, distributed more than 1,500 additional PPE masks and bottles of hand sanitizer to front line responders and essential workers covering the 99th Assembly District.

This is on top of the more than 10,000 PPE masks and hundreds of bottles of hand sanitizer that Schmitt has already distributed to 99th Assembly District front line responders and essential workers and more than 74,000 PPE masks processed through the assemblyman’s office to other agencies for distribution including Orange and Rockland counties.

While Schmitt is still currently on active duty with the Army National Guard for the COVID-19 mission, his wife Nikki Schmitt continues to oversee all distribution of these critical supplies.

Front line responders and essential workers in need of PPE masks should contact schmittc@nyassembly.gov or call 845-469-6929 with any additional requests.

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Assemblyman Schmitt for his much needed donation of PPE to our first responders here in the Town of Goshen," said George Lyons, Town of Goshen Councilman and Goshen Ambulance Corps.

Village of Monroe Mayor Neil Dywer added: “The Village of Monroe would like to thank Assemblyman Schmitt for his generous support of our first responders and essential personnel at this time. We greatly appreciate his efforts to keep everyone in the community safe and healthy, even outside of his own district.”
