AMEICO, a distributor of contemporary designs from global leading designers of the 20th and 21st Century located in New Milford, CT, has donated 450 KN95 masks to the New Milford branch of Danbury Hospital following a call for in kind donations.
AMEICO received these masks from a supplier in Japan and immediately chose to donate to the front line workers who need these the most within their community. Since inception in 1995, AMEICO has built strong relationships within the New Milford community and in 2012 purchased and restored 29 Church Street in New Milford, CT, a two-story brick and limestone structure built by Dowling & Bottomley, Co. in 1917 for the Southern New England Telephone Company. The historic building is open to the public and to the trade.
AMEICO received these masks from their Japanese supplier of Subu slippers who generously sent the factory's own supply of masks to Italy, France, Spain and the United States, as a result of employees wanting to do something to help in the effort to fight COVID-19.
"We are grateful to the healthcare workers working tirelessly across the country, globe and locally here in New Milford and Danbury. AMEICO is a passionate company made up of a team dedicated to the fostering of meaningful relationships. We are happy to have had the opportunity to help in this local way" says Jeannette Purdy, General Manager of AMEICO.
