2,000 masks donated to City of Madison and Madison City Schools
MADISON – The City of Madison and Madison City Schools received this week a donation of 2,000 masks from Accurate Machine and Tool Corp, a business who has been in Madison for over 30 years.
According to city spokesperson Samantha Magnuson, Madison Visionary Partners, a local nonprofit, facilitated the purchase of the masks from Hudson Alpha.
“We are so grateful that our employees can use this resource to protect against the COVID-19 spread. Our goal is always to serve our community, and we are able to serve safely with the use of these masks,” said city administrator Marc Jacobson.
“It is our hope that the protective equipment will play some small role in protecting lives in our community. The more we do for one another, the faster the city will get through the current crisis,” President of AMT, Martin Folgmann expressed.
Following Gov. Ivey’s “Safer at Home” order, Madison residents are continually practicing safer interactions and working conditions through social distancing. “Even through social distancing, we want our community to know MVP is still working to connect people with causes that make an impact in Madison,” says Elizabeth Brinton, Executive Director of MVP.
Magnuson said the City of Madison and Madison City Schools are very appreciative of help from community members, businesses and local non-profits to face the challenge of COVID-19.
