NEW YORK, NY (BlackNews.com) — RPGSHOW, a leading provider of luxury wigs in partnership with sister company, MyFirstWig, is giving back to the community with a donation of vital PPE materials to various hospitals in NYC and other areas currently battling COVID-19.
RPGSHOW has coordinated the donation of nearly 7,000 masks to the medical community in NYC. This includes 1,000 of the hard to procure N95 masks and some 5,500 regular medical masks and protective eyewear. Hospitals set to receive these materials include the NYU Langone Medical Center, Mount Sinai, and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. Both brands have also privately donated hundreds of masks and supplies to individuals at smaller, private centers in need of supplies to help protect their staff.“We were very fortunate that we were able to support in this way. It’s important that others see that companies from across all different sectors can come together to help the health professionals on the front line. We knew we could help get access to these vital materials, so we chose to act as the effort against COVID-19 should be a joint effort across countries and different people. We hope to do more in the future and join more organizations in supporting our heroes on the frontline,” said Yolanda Yuan, who oversees the operations of both brands.
“[This] donation will be greatly appreciated by all, and absolutely will help keep our workforce safe, so that we can continue to provide excellent care to anyone who needs it,” stated Jamie Ruhmshottel, RN from Mount Sinai Hospital.
To show their gratitude and support, Myfirstwig has also set up a system through their website (MyFirstWig.com) where medical professionals can apply for free masks and other supplies. RPGSHOW and Myfirstwig seem to be the only wig companies to set up these types of donations so far, but they hope others in their industry can join in supporting the medical community during this crucial time.
