Tuesday, July 28, 2020
To help stem the tide of COVID-19 and safeguard Irvine first responders, residents, and workers, FivePoint Holdings, LLC has donated 1 million face masks to the City of Irvine in its continuing effort to provide critical resources where needed most in the region.
In the initial days of the statewide lockdown in March when personal protective equipment was in high demand, FivePoint was among the first companies locally to pivot and acquire more than 100,000 face masks for healthcare workers, law enforcement personnel, and others. Today’s announcement of an additional donation of one million masks to the City of Irvine furthers FivePoint’s commitment to secure these much-needed resources in the midst of this global medical emergency.
“From the start, FivePoint has supported healthcare workers, first responders, and all of the heroes on the frontline of this pandemic, including here in the City of Irvine, our public partner in good times and moments of crisis like this,” FivePoint Chairman and CEOEmile Haddad said. “We believe deeply in the safety and well-being of this great city, its residents and those who work here, and FivePoint will continue to do as much as we can to help this community be prepared for what lies ahead.”
“The health and safety of all residents, and especially healthcare workers and first responders on the frontlines, remains the City of Irvine’s highest priority as we continue closely monitoring the COVID-19 crisis,” Irvine Mayor Christina Shea said. “We extend our deepest appreciation to our partner FivePoint for their dedication to the Irvine community and continued collaboration.”
The City of Irvine is committed in its effort to help the community deliver critically important care and service, as safely as possible. The face masks will be distributed to the community as part of the City’s overall response efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.
