The masks will help protect local health and human services employees as they fight the spread of COVID-19.

EXETER, PA – March 19, 2020 – Kuharchik Construction Inc. has partnered with Luzerne County to distribute over 1,000 N95 face masks to health and human services employees in the area to help fight the spread of COVID-19.

The N95 filtered mask protects wearers from both airborne particles and liquids that can contaminate the face. The masks will be made available to caseworkers, including Children and Youth Services, local hospitals and medical professionals.

“Healthcare professionals are running desperately low on supplies while acting as our last line of defense to this pandemic. When we heard Vice President Pence’s plea for construction companies to consider donating N95 masks to local hospitals, we knew we had to take action,” said Robert Bresnahan, CEO of Kuharchik Construction.

Members of the Kuharchik Construction team discovered an extra supply of face masks while doing inventory and knew that it would be a welcomed donation to those in need.

“We as Americans need to do everything we can to ameliorate this crisis. Our highest risk neighbors must have every opportunity to conquer this illness,” said Bresnahan. “It is our time to pull together and come away stronger and more united than ever. I encourage other business leaders to seek ways that they too can contribute to combat this virus.”
