Global coatings company PPG (Pittsburgh) announced late last week that it will donate 80,000 masks to hospitals in Pittsburgh, New York, Cleveland, the Detroit area and Huntsville, Alabama, in support of COVID-19 relief.

The remaining 50,000 surgical masks and 10,000 N-95 masks will be distributed to:

  • UPMC and Allegheny Health Network hospitals in Pittsburgh;
  • New York-area hospitals;
  • Cleveland-area hospitals;
  • Henry Ford Health System in Dearborn, Michigan, and Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan; and
  • Huntsville Hospital and Crestwood Medical Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

PPG says that it will also partner with General Motors to distribute additional masks to hospitals in the Detroit area, and “utilize its global supply chain network to support Pittsburgh hospitals in overcoming supply chain shortages.”

“PPG is proud to support the medical community as they courageously continue their work on the frontlines of this global pandemic,” said Michael H. McGarry, PPG Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

“As One PPG family, we will continue to work with our community partners to provide support and deploy resources wherever possible. We look forward to a brighter future, together.”
