On Monday, March 23, the Catholic United Financial Foundation donated 195 of the desperately-needed N95 face masks to the Minnesota Nurses Association.
These masks are the only FDA-approved barrier effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19, and have become almost impossible to obtain. Manufacturers are ramping up production to meet the need, but it will take time for the new masks to reach hospitals and clinics. The Foundation maintained this quantity of masks for Catholic United Response disaster recovery teams to use during flood and fire cleanup efforts.
Harald Borrmann, president of Catholic United Financial, and Robert Heuermann, executive director of the Foundation, determined that even this small batch of masks would be better used by nurses who are on the front lines of battling the COVID-19 virus.
We at Catholic United hope you are all staying safe and sound, as we all do our part to flatten the curve and overcome this unprecedented national health crisis. God bless you all.
