MN Dealership Collecting Facemasks for Healthcare Workers

Written by Estefan Saucedo, KARE 11

As a Minnesota-based healthcare system requests protective mask donations, a local dealership has stepped up to help collect them.

Allina Health is asking anyone able to donate protective masks to drop them off at designated locations so that healthcare workers can have protection when treating patients. 


AutoNation Ford in White Bear Lake, MN, said as of March 23, it would use its resources in the push to collect the masks, by using its 40+ delivery vehicles, already visiting auto repair and body shops, to collect any donated face masks.


Simply hand N95 or N100 masks to an AutoNation driver, or call the parts line at 651-484-8888 to schedule a pick up.


There is a huge demand for masks as the healthcare needs of the community grow due to the coronavirus. 


Factory made N-95 masks and ear loop masks are needed, but people can also contribute hand-sewn masks if they make them. 


For more information on Allina Health locations accepting donations, see the full story on the KARE 11 website.
