Parker’s, the popular convenience store and food service company, recently donated 800 KN95 masks to healthcare providers at Beaufort Memorial Hospital.

“Beaufort Memorial Hospital is very grateful to Parker’s for their support during this unprecedented time,” BMH special projects director Courtney Smith said in a release. “Given the unpredictability of the PPE supply chain, Parker’s donation of masks is especially meaningful and will assist us in continuing to provide the highest level of protection to our workers on the front lines, so they may, in turn, provide the best possible care to the patients we serve.”

To date, Parker’s has donated more than 7,000 KN95 masks to hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout coastal Georgia and South Carolina during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’re honored to support the doctors, nurses, clinicians and staff, who are providing exceptional healthcare to area residents throughout the Coronavirus pandemic,” Parker’s founder and CEO Greg Parker said in a release. “We know there have been mask shortages throughout the region and want to make sure our local healthcare heroes have the Personal Protective Equipment they need to stay safe while caring for our community’s patients.”
