Speedway has donated N95 and surgical masks to children’s hospitals across the country including Dayton Children’s Hospital.
To help protect medical professionals on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, Speedway has donated 7,000 N95 masks and 3,000 surgical masks to each of 11 children’s hospitals located in hotspot areas to help provide protection when treating the youngest members of the community.
Masks will help keep kids like Luke Bemus, a cystic fibroris patient, safer as they visit Dayton Children's for necessary treatment related to their condition.
“On behalf of all the caregivers who work on the frontlines of the 11 member hospitals who received this generous donation, we are grateful for these much-needed masks from Speedway,” said Teri Nestel, interim president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
“Speedway’s commitment to the well-being of local medical professionals has never been more needed or more appreciated. It’s comforting to know that these doctors and nurses have the needed resources necessary to care for those who depend on children’s hospitals now and into the future.”
CMN Hospitals that received the donation include Children's Hospital Los Angeles and Rady Children's Hospital in California, Riley Hospital for Children in Indiana, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, Dayton Children's Hospital and Nationwide Children’s Hospital, both in Ohio, Nicklaus Children's Hospital in Florida, Children's Wisconsin, Beaumont Children's and Helen DeVos Children's Hospital in Michigan, and Monroe Children's Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville.
