iQ Power Tools, a manufacturer of power tools with integrated dust collection systems, has donated over 18,000 N95 respirator masks to two community healthcare facilities, located right in the company’s very own backyard.
The company now has provided l relief to frontline workers during the coronavirus pandemic, working with the Troesh family to donate 10,000 N95 masks to the Riverside County Regional Medical Center, and an additional 8,000 masks (with the help of the American Lung Association) to the Loma Linda University Pulmonary Care Clinic, both located near iQ's headquarters in Southern California.
“There could be no greater honor than to make this donation to our own community hospitals,” said Paul Guth, president of iQ, “We had the opportunity, along with the Troesh Family, to really make a difference. If these masks can protect the lives of thousands of people and potentially save healthcare workers from becoming afflicted, then we’ve reached our goal.”
The company is also passionate about safety and education involving pulmonary diseases for those in the construction industry. The firm most recently partnered with the American Lung Association on a strong educational initiative relative to "Silica on the Jobsite."
