Our community is large and wildly diverse, which is at the same time our strength and our weakness. #Activate10 is a movement seeking to increase communication between individuals and organizations across Fremont County and to promote positive action in our communities.

Local group Lander Together, in coordination with the Fremont County Incident Command Emergency Management Team, has organized a personal protective equipment (PPE) drive to keep local healthcare workers stocked. Donation bins are located in the breezeway between buildings at the Lander United Methodist Church (262 N. 3rd Street) from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

“Let’s do what we can to make sure our care providers in Fremont County are stocked for the future in the face of increasing demand on these resources,” organizer Kristen Gunther said.

Community members can donate new, preferably unopened PPE items that you already have in your home. They are asking folks to not go purchase them at the store, but only to donate what you already have.

PPE items include:

*Nitrile gloves
*Surgical masks of any kind
*N95 masks of any kind
*Safety glasses/goggles
*Hand sanitizer
*Gowns and Tyvek suits

The bins are sanitized before removing them for item delivery. If you have a large donation that you would like to make, please call Carol Smith: 307-335-5366.
