TULSA, Okla. — Bank of America is providing 26,000 face masks to the City of Tulsa during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The donation is part of the organization's $1 billion, four-year commitment of support to help local communities "address economic and racial inequality accelerated by a global pandemic," according to a news release.
Tulsa City Council accepted the donation on Wednesday. It's the largest single donation of face masks to the city since the outbreak began in mid-March, the release said.
This generous PPE donation will ensure we keep our first responders and residents safe when going out to calls in the community. This donation will also help protect some of Tulsa’s most vulnerable residents as we all work together to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our city. The City of Tulsa is committed to the public safety of our employees and residents and I want to thank Bank of America for their significant donation to our community.
The city said masks are going to be distributed to the Tulsa Fire and Police Departments along with programs funded through the CARES Act.
