COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV). Finding items like toilet paper, cleaners, and certain foods can be hard in times like these.

That's why a local organization is giving back, and doing the legwork for the community.

The United Court of the Pikes Peak Empire has a mission during the pandemic: to help out members of the community by making "COVID Readiness Kits."

"A whole gallon of bleach, we've got rice, flour, beans, masks--which are really important right now--we've also got gloves, eggs, toilet paper, which is also really important right now," said Autumn Quinn, the reigning empress for UCPPE.

The kits are free of charge for anyone who needs it.

"Things that are hard to find, especially if you're immunocompromised and can't get to the store," said Nic Grzecka , emperor 44 for UCPPE. "So we put all those items together in care packages."

People don't even have to get out of their cars. The organization says they hope people will take advantage and know they aren't alone.

"We're all in this together and we all have to come out of this together and you know, help your neighbors," Grzecka said.

"It's actually impacting people's lives I think and it's not just a come have entertainment. There are so many people that are immunocompromised in our community," Quinn added.

The leftover kits from Sunday can be reserved and picked up at Club Q from 4-5 p.m. seven days a week.
