Lincoln, NH, heart of the White Mountains: To combat the shortage of surgical and other masks, Burgeon is participating in the #millionmaskchallenge. Effective yesterday, Burgeon converted 100% of its production to create reusable cotton face masks to be donated wherever the need is greatest.
A number of organizations including hospitals and homeless shelters have put out the call for homemade face masks. While these masks are not ideal, we are in a crisis and this is a way we can help. The Center for Disease Control states "In settings where facemasks are not available, HCP might use homemade masks (eg, bandana, scarf) for care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort". We are aware that the government is working hard to get proper medical masks in the hands of medical professionals but there is a real need at this moment in time.
If you are a healthcare organization or a non-profit that does not have access to N95 masks and are qualified to handle and sanitize these masks, we ask that you please contact Burgeon at email@example.com. For those of you who have already contacted us, we are working away to supply you with what you have requested. During this time our online store remains open. We thank all of those who have ordered from us recently. Your purchases are allowing us to operate and supply these masks to organizations in need. During this time of crisis we are offering free shipping on all orders.
Please stay safe out there. We wish you all the best of health during this crisis. We’ll see you on the other side.
