Visit the Knox County Community Health Coalition table at the April 13 Business and Community Expo and drop your business card in the basket for a drawing for a mini grant to help update your organization’s tobacco-free policy. KCCHC will be in the Knox County Ballroom.
Since 1985, businesses in Maine with indoor workspaces have been required to have a tobacco-free workplace policy. Now is a good time to refresh the policy to address vaping and other tobacco products. KCCHC offers free assistance and can even draft a policy for your consideration, at no cost to you. Sample policy templates and examples of free signs will be available at the Expo booth. Munch on healthy snacks as well.
KCCHC will also feature information on how to refer employees who are interested in becoming tobacco or vape-free to the Maine QuitLink for free cessation services.
If you can’t make the Expo, you can still receive free assistance by emailing Becky Hayes Boober at email@example.com or calling 207-236-6313, ext.2. Nonprofits, municipalities, and some businesses are eligible for mini grants before June 1.
