What began as a conversation about how we could give back to our communities during the pandemic quickly grew into a charitable donation that surpassed our wildest expectations -- and it's all thanks to you, our loyal Ball and Buck customers.
Let's break it down:
- 10 SMALL BUSINESSES were able to keep their doors open
- 100+ EMPLOYEES continued to earn a paycheck
- 24,000 MASKS DONATED to medical professionals
This effort has shown that in hard times, beautiful and positive things can happen when we all come together.
But don't take our word for it; below are quotes from the CEOs of two of the medical organizations that received these donations:
"During these difficult times, it truly takes a village. Thanks to donations of personal protective equipment from companies like Ball and Buck, we are able to make sure our compassionate caregivers can stay protected while administering the highest level of patient care." -- Isaac Sendros, CEO, Centura Health - Avista Adventists Hospital, Louisville, CO
“On behalf of a grateful institution, I am humbled to accept Ball and Buck’s donation of 7,500 masks. We are meeting new companies and individuals, including Ball and Buck’s Founder and President Mark Bollman, who are generously contributing essential supplies for Montefiore’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ball and Buck’s contribution is not just essential for our frontline employees; their support reminds us that we’re all in this together.” -- Dr. Philip O. Ozuah, President and CEO of Montefiore Medical Center, New York, NY
The overwhelming support you showed for this project far exceeded what we thought was possible. We are all looking forward to when the pandemic is firmly in our rearview mirror, but in the mean time, we are taking a moment to appreciate that there is good in the world. On behalf of the Ball and Buck team and thousands of grateful medical professionals across the country, we want to say THANK YOU for helping to make all of this possible.
