Local contractors respond to Adam Quenneville’s call for action
Springfield, MA – The phone hasn’t stopped ringing since Adam Quenneville recently put out an A.P.B. to local contractors to donate new N95 SURGICAL RESPIRATOR MASKS with NIOSH ON THE LABELING to Baystate Health. Contractor calls and calls from other sources prompted Baystate Health to set up a DONATIONS HOTLINE so they can review the calls to determine whether the supplies that are donated can be used by clinicians and how to drop them off.
“Our brotherhood of contractors is really coming together to get this done,” said Adam Quenneville, organizer of the drive. “Contractors from all over are reaching out to me directly. I am referring them to the new number at Baystate Health where they can learn if their donations can be used by staff and how to get their donations to the hospital. We still need more N95 masks. Let’s keep it coming! Thank you and be well.”
“We continue to hear from contractors,” said Mary Persaud, Consultant, Clinical Value Analysis at Baystate Health. “Thank you!” Persaud is coordinating the donation
process to keep it safe and organized.
N95 RESPIRATOR MASKS with NIOSH IMPRINTED ON THE LABELING are designed to protect against particulate matter such as dust, fumes, mists, aerosols, and smoke particulates. They are effective against biological particles such as pollen, mold spores, bacteria, viruses, animal dander and allergens, and aerosolized droplets invisible to the naked eye.
