RHINELANDER - A local grocery chain is now getting some help to sanitize its carts and baskets.
Preferred Painting in Rhinelander is converting unused equipment to disinfect shopping carts at Trig's stores across Wisconsin during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Trig's gave the painting company a shout out on Facebook
Owner Matt Kitzke says he offered up his time when he started to hear more about the coronavirus spread.
"With our down time right now, the off season, painting is not real busy right now and thought we had the equipment and people to do it," said Kitzke. "You see the numbers with the virus and how it's spreading ... we're just trying to make sure that we're helping people out."
On Facebook, Trig's said all supplies and labor are being donated.
Kitzke said he's not worried about money and it just feels good to help out.
"They were really grateful," said Kitzke.
He encourages other businesses to volunteer their time and skills to help the community if they can.
