Today, members of the Cambridge Police and Cambridge Fire Departments assisted with distributing approximately 50,000 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) masks and hand sanitizer that was generously donated by Cambridge-based GCP Applied Technologies. The masks and sanitizer will be used to help protect staff and patients at the Mount Auburn Hospital and Cambridge Hospital, as the COVID-19 public health crisis has strained the supply of these resources.

The distribution effort was coordinated by Captain Jeremy Walsh, the EMS Division Captain at the Cambridge Fire Department, and Officer Jason Callinan, a Cambridge Police Officer and registered nurse.

“This is another powerful example of how the Cambridge community continues to come together for the greater good in the midst of a challenging time,” said Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui and City Manager Louis A. DePasquale in a joint statement. “We greatly appreciate GCP Applied Technologies for their generosity and our public safety and health care providers for their ongoing resiliency and selfless commitment to mitigating and slowing the pandemic.”
