DiscountMugs.com is proud to announce that has donated 11,000 surgical masks to low-income seniors in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. This effort was made possible through a partnership 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 members receiving the reusable masks is 74 years of age, with most not having the means to purchase supplies.
“We know that the public is having a hard time finding masks. In our conversations with IMC, we understood that patients were concerned about not having them and experiencing anxiety as a result. We are pleased that we were able to step in and provide them for this vulnerable population,” said DiscountMugs.com CEO Sai Koppaka.
The masks will be delivered to patient homes along with a note with instructions on how to safely use the mask, as well as 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. We’ve seen demand from our customers in the healthcare field and other essential industries trying to operate in a COVID-19 environment,” added Koppaka.
