Please monitor www.kingstonmass.org for daily news from Kingston’s Emergency Management Team.

Kingston’s Emergency Management Team met today to discuss the Town’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have heard from all corners of the community from residents offering their time and resources to support Kingston residents who are in need. At this point in time, we’re confident that we can safely and responsibly direct those intentions to the individuals below:

– The Kingston Fire Department currently has supplies of personal protective gear (PPE) for their staff, however they are forecasting a need for additional PPE in the weeks to come. If you have unused PPE such as (Tyvek suits or similar, N95 respirator masks, and medical grade hospital gloves) that may be of use to Kingston’s first responders, please contact Mark Douglass or Adam Hatch at 781-585-0532. If your items meet the standards of Kingston’s Fire and EMS workers, they will gladly accept them.

– The Restoration Community Church (RCC) in Kingston has a Board of Health certified food pantry that serves 15 community members 3-4 meals per week. Due to the closure of other area pantries, there is additional pressure on the RCC from those who typically receive food elsewhere. Their shelves are beginning to run dry. If you would like to make a donation of non-perishable food items, please contact Pastor Eric Greer at 781-361-9108.
