Republic has shown up strong to help keep local communities and small businesses thriving during the pandemic. As an extension of our continued Committed to Serve initiative, we recently donated 60,000 N95 respirator masks to Rutherford County in Tennessee, near our Murfreesboro BU, to help protect first responders, county personnel and the community. We also donated 40,000 masks to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta (one of our customers!).
Shout out to Ashley F. in Procurement for helping with the order and shipments.

We continue to keep the safety of all employees our No. 1 priority.
The good news is that we have secured enough masks for our people for the foreseeable future. So, we decided to pay it forward and donate some surplus masks to other essential workers in need in two of the communities we serve. If you have any questions about PPE, please talk to your supervisor.
