Press Release, Assemblyman Steve Hawley

Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) is thanking a longtime local business for supporting the community during this current healthcare crisis.

Chapin Manufacturing in Batavia, a staple business since 1884, is donating 1-gallon and 3-gallon spraying containers for the purposes of disinfecting buildings during the virus outbreak.

“When the CEO reached out to me last week, I was absolutely thrilled to hear and couldn’t say yes fast enough,” Hawley said. “It’s good to see that despite all of the confusion and concern throughout the state and the country, people are still stepping up to help their neighbors. It gives me the hope and reassurance that after all this is over, our community will come back together stronger than ever.”

The sprayers will be distributed to emergency management offices in Genesee, Orleans and Monroe counties. The EMOs will coordinate with local hospitals, fire departments, EMTs and schools to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to participate in using these generous gifts.
