Disney Parks donates N95 masks and ponchos to hospitals on the frontline of COVID-19

Apr 01, 2020 in "The Walt Disney Company"

Disney Parks has donated more than 100,000 N95 masks and 150,000 rain ponchos to medics battling the coronavirus throughout the country.

Nurses across the country are reporting that rain ponchos can be an excellent way to protect their clothing and prolong the use of PPE, while also freeing up gowns when needed.

“The COVID-19 pandemic is unlike anything we’ve seen before,” said Charles Redding, MedShare CEO and President. “We have to find ways to pool our resources and work together to help the healthcare workers who are doing their very best to treat patients and contain COVID-19. We appreciate Disney partnering with us to support hospitals and healthcare workers on the frontlines.”

Last month, Disney donated more than 270 tons of food to local food banks from Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris, and Aulani.
