With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our hospitals and medical professionals are in need of personal protective equipment, or PPE. Specifically, there is a critical shortage of the N95 masks and YOU can help our local health providers by donating your excess PPE.
The Fredericksburg Are Builders Association (FABA) is currently collecting such protective equipment as the N95 masks. You can directly donate to FABA or through Atlantic Builders. To donate through FABA, please contact Maria Moore at 540-898-2730. To donate through Atlantic Builders, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
SUPPLIERS: PLEASE CHECK YOUR STOCK/INVENTORY FOR N95 MASKS.
If you are able to donate these masks, FABA will collect these masks – drop off bin at the FABA office – or Atlantic Builders will gladly pick up asap.
CONTRACTORS: PLEASE CHECK YOUR STOCK, INVENTORY, AND WORK SUPPLIES
If you have any unused N95 Mask and would be willing to donate them for our local healthcare providers, FABA will collect these masks and deliver them to our local hospitals.
Here is a link to information on N95 style masks. Please note, an N95 respirator is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles. The 'N95' designation means that when subjected to careful testing, the respirator blocks at least 95 percent of very small (0.3 micron) test particles. If properly fitted, the filtration capabilities of N95 respirators exceed those of face masks. However, even a properly fitted N95 respirator does not completely eliminate the risk of illness or death.
