GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Lowe’s, the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce and the Western Colorado Latino Chamber of Commerce are teaming up to distribute 4,000 PPE masks to small businesses, with preference being given to minority, women and veteran owned businesses in Mesa County.
“Lowe’s is proud to be able to help out our fellow businesses in the Grand Valley comply with the Mesa County Health Department Health Orders,” notes Assistant Store Manager Ryan Weatherby.
