For the past week, your Montana John Deere stores across the state have served as a collection point for N95 Protective masks to support the medical community as the needs have grown and supply has been constrained globally. This was in response to the President’s request for construction companies to donate their masks in support of healthcare facilities. With the rapid spread of COVID19, the shortage has become more acute as hospital staff protocols have changed to 100% mask use to ensure they are protected while they serve others.
Given the rapidly increasing need, the Montana Hospital Association has put out a call for ALL protective masks that are available in the community to be donated as soon as possible.
John Deere stores across the state will be collecting masks to support this effort through Friday, April 10th, 2020.
