Request for Face Masks from Vice President Pence


A Message from AGC-GM Chief Executive Officer Mike Fabishak:

AGC Members,

I am writing to all AGC of Greater Milwaukee Members, as well as all area contractors on behalf of Vice President Pence request concerning the donation of N95 Face Masks to area hospitals.

With the outbreak of the coronavirus, there has been a shortage of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for health care workers, particularly the NIOSH 95 face masks. As such, they are requesting all construction companies who have some available to donate them immediately to your area hospital.

As you may know, Vice President Pence is coordinating the federal government’s response to this pandemic. As such, due to the lack of supply of PPE’s, he is asking all construction companies for your help.

“We would make one specific request, and that is, we would urge construction companies to donate their inventory of N95 masks to your local hospital and forgo additional orders of those industrial masks,” Vice President Mike Pence said during a White House press conference on Tuesday.

He continued, “Because of what the president asked to be included in legislation moving through the Congress today, those industrial masks that they use on construction sites are perfectly acceptable for healthcare workers to be protected from a respiratory disease.”

On behalf of the AGC of Greater Milwaukee we are asking you to acknowledge the Vice President’s request and consider donating your available N95s to your local hospital.

Thank you for your consideration and if you have any questions, please contact me at your convenience.

Mike Fabishak
