However, since the pandemic began, in addition to that they’ve started building COVID-19 safety kits.
“We assemble them at our Greensburg location, and the supplies are what we’ve sourced,” Social Media Content Coordinator Jessica Szakos told KDKA’s Ross Guidotti.
Inside the kits are hand sanitizers, masks and floor decals.
AccessGenie has sent these kits out to countless schools, now Szako says they’re looking to help elsewhere: “We’re trying to get the word out to any community group, homeless shelter, women’s shelter, food kitchen — we have supplies and we’re willing to donate.”READ MORE: Gov.

The kits are free.
“We’ve been very lucky — enough to be able to stay open and not do any layoffs and we wanted to give back,” said company President John Yetsconish.
With a global pandemic getting worse by the minute, supplies aren’t exactly easy to come by. However, according to Yetsconish, they’ve been fortunate: “We have resources to be able to procure this stuff through connections we’ve made buying parts.”President Joe Biden Pleads With States To Use COVID-19 Relief Money To Pay People To Get Vaccinated
