CALBAG METALS was approached by a long time trading partner in Asia to help with the current low Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) supplies at local hospitals. Calbag President, Warren Rosenfeld explains, “Our friends overseas knew of our long relationship with Providence and said” we can help with masks, can we ship to you?”
Providence Healthcare has called for 100 Million Masks. Today, we donate 2,000, anti-viral, anti-bacterial masks. The global demand for high grade masks, also called protective equipment (PPE), has created a severe shortage of PPE across the world. Manufacturing and distribution channels ramping up to meet the dire need takes time. The story of our ability to serve in a small but important way is one of Connection. Relationship. Community.
Phone call leads to connection
Every person, neighborhood, city, state, country, and continent has connections. In this challenging time and reality of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), healthcare providers have placed themselves at risk for the virus serving patients while the nation and even the world scrambles to manufacture and deliver safety masks.
We at Calbag Metals want to thank this long time customer of recycled materials in Asia for responding with an un-sollicited donation of 2,000 hospital-grade N95 masks. This manufacturing partner has known us for decades and remembered our commitment to Providence Health and Hospitals in Oregon. They called us and provided the masks for healthcare providers.
