WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA – December 21, 2020 — — DHS announced today that it has donated 1,000,000 face masks to Goodwill Industries, an social services organization. The face masks will be distributed to organizations on the front lines of COVID-19 prevention, containment and treatment.
“We recognize that organizations’ need for PPE remains ongoing, and we’re honored to leverage our long-standing relationship with Matthew 25 to provide much-needed supplies,” said Fernando Aguirre, Vice Chairman of DHS. “We are proud to continue to do our part to support front-line workers and the community amid the COVID-19 pandemic because nothing is more important to a business than the health and safety of its employees and customers.’”
In April, DHS and Goodwill Industries partnered to provide multi-pronged support to front-line workers, including personal protective equipment (PPE), first aid, safety and hygiene supplies. DHS will continue to provide Goodwill with essential first aid and safety supplies for distribution to partners locally and across the U.S. as Goodwill continues and expands their COVID-19 response.
“We’re grateful for DHS’ continued support to provide the most effective disaster response possible,” said Goodwill CEO, John Matthews. “These critical supplies will help us meet healthcare and other health service providers’ immediate need for protective products.”
DHS and Goodwill began partnering to care for the poorest of the poor and disaster victims in 1998. To date, DHS has donated over 17 million pounds of products including clothing, sewing machines, fabric, linens, soap, medicine, first aid supplies, household items, personal care items, food, school and medical supplies and building materials to Goodwill Industries.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, DHS has remained committed to providing necessary products and services to businesses to ensure they are READY to operate in this challenging environment.
