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 February 8, 2021, more than 875,000 masks have been shipped to 625 first responder agencies across the country.

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 Chief of Police on April 15, 2020.  The next 25,000 masks arrived in Virginia on April 16, 2020, and were distributed throughout the state by the Virginia Highway Patrol.  On April 17, 2020, 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, 2020 with an additional 50,000 masks to the Los Angeles Police Department.  Additional recipients of several hundred thousand masks have been sent to first responders in Albany, NY, Smithfield, RI, Whittier, CA, Baton Rouge, LA, Otis, MA, Detroit, MI, Frankfort, KY, Terrell, TX, East Orange NJ and many other locations.  Masks are being sent each and every day to first responder agencies both large and small.

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 use that location as a distribution point so that fire, police, EMT, hospital, and other first responder agencies in the area can collect the equipment they so desperately need.

If you know first responders who need masks, contact Bob at the First Responders Children’s Foundation Mask Project at Bob@1stRCF.org.  And, please visit our generous partners’ websites by clicking on their logos below.
