At a time when N95 protective masks are in short supply for medical facilities, a group of local construction businesses have stepped up to lend a hand.

Massaro Construction Group has donated a supply of masks to the Allegheny Health Network. In addition to the medical field, the masks are often worn in the construction industry to protect people from exposure to various toxins.

“At a time like this, it really does take a village to meet the significant challenges we are facing as a health care industry,” said Cindy Hundorfean, AHN President and CEO. “Having enough personal protective equipment to make sure our dedicated caregivers are appropriately safeguarded during a pandemic response is one of our highest priorities, and we can’t thank Massaro and our community partners enough for their incredibly generous contribution to that cause.”

In additional to Massaro, Turner Construction, Considine Biebel and Co., E.E. Austin and Son and the Robert Benjamin Wiley Community Charter School have also donated masks.

“These times are unprecedented and therefore require our community to come together, pull resources and design a support system that plays a role in reducing potential risks associated with this pandemic,” said Steven Massaro, president of Massaro Construction Group. “We have a long-standing relationship with Allegheny Health Network and consider it an honor to be able to assist in its response to this pandemic.”
