3M, St. Paul, MN, is donating relief and recovery supplies to communities affected by the wildfires in California through its 3Mgives foundation.
The maker of consumer products and safety equipment has supplied 380,000 N95 respirators to communities via its humanitarian partners, The American Red Cross and Direct Relief. Used properly, the respirators filter out 95 percent of the particulate from smoke and ash, the company said.
The American Red Cross is distributing 3M N95 respirators at 17 open shelters in Northern and Southern California, and has shipped additional respirators for distribution in the community once authorities determine it’s safe for residents to re-enter their homes.
To date, 3M has donated more than 500,000 respirators for various natural disasters in 2018 and provided more than $1.5 million in cash and product donations.
