DiscountMugs.com Donates 11,000 Face Masks to Seniors
DiscountMugs.com, Medley, Fla., has donated 11,000 surgical masks to low-income seniors in Miami-Dade and Broward counties in Florida.
The company partnered with IMC Health Medical Centers to help assist seniors in having the necessary masks to follow coronavirus-related protection guidelines. The average age of the recipients is 74, with most not having the means to purchase supplies.
“We know that the public is having a hard time finding masks,” said DiscountMugs.com CEO Sai Koppaka. “In our conversations with IMC, we understood that patients were concerned about not having them and [were] experiencing anxiety as a result. We are pleased that we are able to step in and provide them for this vulnerable population.”
The masks will be delivered to patient homes along with a note with instructions on how to safely use the mask and a contact number for any questions.
“Given our sourcing experience worldwide, we were able to leverage our supplier relationships to find a source in China with supply of these masks,” Koppaka said. “We’ve seen demand from our customers in the healthcare field and other essential industries trying to operate in a COVID-19 environment.”
