ChristianaCare has partnered with barbershops and salons in Wilmington, Delaware, to help underserved neighborhoods prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Licensed barbers and hairstylists who completed a ChristianaCare-led webinar on COVID-19 were eligible to receive coronavirus safety kits with masks and face shields, disposable capes, sanitation supplies and educational materials. The kits, distributed at Harriet Tubman Park in Wilmington on June 16, enable shop owners, who have trusted roles in the community, to re-open safely and to help educate their clients about coronavirus prevention and safety. ChristianaCare purchased the kits with funds from the Harrington Value Institute Community Partnership Fund.
