Monster Aid Thanks First Responders with Donation to San Diego Fire-Rescue Department

On Monday, May 18, 2020, Monster Aid celebrated the opportunity to donate 500 face masks to the City of San Diego Fire-Rescue Department

Monster Aid has recently set aside 4,000 masks to donate to community organizations, small businesses, and more during the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting donation outreach locally was the first step in the process to get PPE out into the community.

On a sunny beach morning, Captain Richard Marcello, the Pacific Beach Station #21 squad, and the Monster Aid team met to celebrate the donation with photos and a tour of the station. 

During the tour of the firehouse, Captain Marcello iterated that many of the amenities, such as the gym, recreation, and kitchen supplies were purchased at the expense of the squad. Everyone pitches in to make the station a liveable, safe, and productive environment. However, PPE is known to be in short supply and difficult to obtain, especially for first responders who need it most. 

Of the 500 masks donated, 50 will go directly to Station #21, and 450 to be distributed amongst all fire-rescue personnel. 

Monster Aid is honored to be able to thank our community’s heroes for their service by providing high-quality PPE. In a time of uncertainty, helping in any way possible is the priority. We are here to make sure our community comes back from COVID-19 stronger than ever.
