Bass Pro Shop Founder and Owner of Cabela's, Johnny Morris, is set to donate one million face mask to COVID-19 healthcare workers.
According to the Press Release, Morris is personally donating one million FDA-approved ASTM level 1 procedure face mask to health care workers and first responders battling COVID-19. In Owatonna, Rodgers, and Woodbury, Mayo Clinic Health Hospital and Hennepin County Public Health will receive 14,000 total face masks.
We are extremely grateful to our nation’s healthcare workers serving on the frontlines of this unprecedented global health crisis. These heroic men and women continue to dedicate their lives to save the loved ones of others, and we are all honored to support them on behalf of everyone at Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s, and the communities we serve.
Morris, a noted conservationist, has teamed up with long time partner, Convoy of Hope, on this effort and will begin to distribute the mask as early as next week. National Spokesperson for Convoy of Hope, Jeff Nene, states, “The generosity of Johnny Morris will make a significant impact in the battle against coronavirus across North America. At a time when our healthcare workers are being pushed to the limit physically and emotionally, we’re grateful for partners like Johnny and his incredible team of Outfitters who continue to place a priority on giving back and helping our medical professionals safely perform their live-saving duties.”
