Mayor Domenic J. Sarno applauds and deeply thanks MassMutual for stepping up and donating additional N95 masks to the city. These much needed and vital PPE’s will be put into immediate use by our first responders and frontline personnel.
Mayor Sarno earlier today held a press conference imploring federal and state officials and agencies to appropriately and fairly secure and distribute these PPE’s (N95/KN95 masks) to our states and cities. Stating that during this public health emergency, states and cities should not be completing and bidding against each other for limited supplies.
Mayor Sarno stated, “Once again, MassMutual has stepped up and has come through for our Springfield. After hearing my plea for help in securing these lifesaving N95 and KN95 masks for our brave and dedicated first responders. MassMutual immediately contacted my office and said they could be there within the hour to donate additional masks. I cannot thank Roger Crandall and everyone at MassMutual enough for their continued support of our Springfield. They truly are a devoted and compassionate corporate citizen who are with us in this fight against the coronavirus.”
