The First Responders Children’s Foundation Mask Project is providing hospital grade masks to first responders across the country in record delivery times thanks to MaskClub by Trevco and a national network of first responders.  As of May 4, nearly 200,000 masks have been deployed across the country with a goal of 1 million masks.

Trevor George, CEO of MaskClub by Trevco, has pledged that for each mask purchased, MaskClub will donate one FDA-approved surgical mask to first responders in partnership with First Responders Children’s Foundation.  The first 5,000 masks were presented to The Michigan Association of Chiefd of Police on April 15.  The next 25,000 masks arrived in Virginia on April 16, and were distributed throughout the state by the Virginia Highway Patrol.  On April 17, a shipment went to the Woonsocket, Rhode Island, Police Department, and an additional 27,500 masks were delivered to the New York City Police Department on May 6 with an additional 50,000 masks en route to the Los Angeles Police Department.  Additional recipients of several hundred thousand masks are earmarked for first responders in Albany, NY, Smithfield, RI, Whittier, CA, Baton Rouge, LA, Otis, MA, Detroit, MI, Frankfort, KY, Terrell, TX, and East Orange NJ.

First Responders Children’s Foundation has engaged its network of first responders across the country to create a simple, new supply chain in order to distribute critical items to first responders across the country.  Bulk shipments are delivered to state police facilities, and then first responder agencies in the state use that location as a distribution point so that fire, police, EMT, and other first responder agencies in the area can collect the equipment they so desperately need.

“I just wanted to thank you very much for the greatly appreciated donation of surgical masks for our local FD/PD and the county law enforcement agencies. I know these are in short supply across the country, so for the Foundation’s generous donation I cannot thank you enough. On behalf of my officers, we sincerely are grateful for the First Responders Children’s Foundation, and we thank you for your kindness and generosity.”
