Resources for Residents
Free Delivery Services
Are you someone who is at a greater risk of contracting the virus and/or unable to access your normal method of getting necessities (food, supplies, pharmacy, etc..)? If so, then you should take advantage of the wonderful volunteers that have stepped up in our community. The Brandon Free Public Library, The Brandon Area Toy Project and the Town of Brandon have partnered to provide a delivery service for people that need the help getting the supplies. How it works is simple:
- Call the retailer and pay for your supplies over the phone.
- Let the retailer know that you are having the delivery service pick-up your items.
- Send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: Who you are, where they ordered from, physical address for delivery, and best contact number. Or you can call Volunteer Coordinator, Colleen Wright (802) 282-6548
- Wait for contact from our vetted volunteer! They will let you know how/when and where it will be dropped off (safely of course with no face-to-face contact)

Resources for Businesses
This page will serve as a compilation of business resources available to Brandon Residents. Many of these links are to outside web pages and documents and could be changing from day to day. We (the business community, the municipal, state and federal governments) are actively working together to respond to the economic challenges and provide guidance and help you to adapt to a post COVID-19 world.
For the most up-to-date information about the state's guidance on your business and when/how it can operate during the state of emergency, visit this page for sector specific information.
This is a document that explains the extended benefits due to the state and federal legislative action. EVERY BUSINESS OWNER should look at this as you and your employees likely qualify. This document also includes some information about other provisions of the CARES act.
(Please note: that the SBA information is best explained by the SBA and their lenders so when in doubt, go with their information)
