Lincoln, NH, the heart of the White Mountains: Three weeks ago, Burgeon converted its production from its own products to making masks for organizations and individuals in need, free of charge. Burgeon has concentrated its donation efforts on organizations that currently do not have the means to protect their people/patients. In the past few weeks, Burgeon masks have made a positive impact in the lives of tens of thousands of people.
“We on the front lines of community aid are so thankful for Burgeon. Without us even having to ask them, they dropped masks off when they saw the local need. So pumped to have you guys in town.” Marcus Covey -- Loon Mountain Ministry
"What a fabulous company! They have “saved the day” by quickly switching from manufacturing apparel to sewing up bandanas in the form of quality masks to help protect our medical providers. Thank you for your service to the community!" Jill Kimball -- Ammononoosuc Community Health
"Please pass along to your team that thanks to your shipment, we have been able to follow local, state, and national guidelines in carrying out our vital mission. Within days of learning that the local public schools would be shutting their doors, Gather quickly ramped up our Meals4Kids program, which normally covers the 10 free and reduced meals per day that vulnerable children miss out on during school breaks. We are providing right around 7000 meals per week to those kid’s families, every week, in 5 towns in the Greater Seacoast. We have also ramped up our pantry-market operation, mobile meals for seniors, and community open market— and literally could not have safely accomplished any of these programs without the masks that your company so generously donated.
In difficult times, frontline organizations like Gather count on the support of companies like Burgeon Outdoor, and are especially proud that this kind of generosity is coming from a home state company." Scott McKee -- Board President, Gather
The thousands of masks that Burgeon has donated to dozens of organizations over the past several weeks have made an impact. Grocery store workers at our local supermarket are better protected, meals are being taken to those in need and our healthcare workers are better protected. The masks may be small, but their impact is huge.
We have received so many notes of kindness and heartfelt gratitude over the past weeks. We are honored to serve in this time of need and look forward to the day when our masks are no longer required.
“We would like to thank all of our customers for supporting our mission during these tumultuous times. Your purchases allow us to continue our efforts to support local organizations. We are 100% focused on making a difference in the lives of those in need at this critical moment. You have made this possible. Thank you.” Rudy Glocker -- Founder, Burgeon Outdoor
