Every day, the staff and DCH uses thousands of masks. Commercially made masks for front line providers are in high demand across the globe as their protective properties are known and tested. The community-sewn masks have become an essential part in DCH’s strategy to conserve the commercially made masks for direct patient care. Yet, DCH’s supply of commercially made masks has continued to dwindle. 

On May 1, BFGoodrich, an operating division of Michelin North America, provided a significant boost to DCH with a donation of 35,000 masks.  

The donation is part of an effort to provide support during the pandemic to the communities where Michelin North America operates. The company is donating 700,000 masks to hospitals, medical facilities, and essential businesses with a critical need for these supplies. 

Several other local businesses have stepped up to help, providing masks, hand sanitizer, and more. The need is great, but so are the people of Tuscaloosa.
