  • 18 rolls of toilet paper
  • 6 rolls of paper towels
  • 1 gallon-sized bottle of bleach for disinfecting and sanitizing
  • 3 spray bottles with triggers

Providers must register for a time to collect a kit from one of six locations.  If the event is sold out, providers should register on the wait list in order to receive information on possible future distributions.  If you have a special circumstance that prevents you from driving to one of these locations during distribution, please contact [email protected] or call 858-775-8336 regarding alternative accommodations.
