N95 masks are hard to come by during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On April 3, 2020 Facebook Seattle donated 4,000 N95 masks to the Sheriff's Office and other local King County law enforcement agencies.

The donation not only allows them to supply the King County Sheriff's Office and all of their contract cities (including Shoreline and Kenmore) with masks, but we were also able to supply:

Algona PD, Auburn PD, Black Diamond PD, Bothell PD, CJTC, Clyde Hill PD, Department of Fish and Wildlife, Des Moines PD, Duvall PD, Federal way PD, Kent PD, Lake Forest Park PD, Normandy Park PD, Pacific PD, Port of Seattle PD, Redmond PD, Renton PD, Tukwila PD, University of Washington PD and Seattle PD.

Sheriff Mitzi G. Johanknecht said:
"I want to give a personal thank you to Facebook of Seattle for your extremely generous donation of 4,000 N95 masks to the King County Sheriff’s Office for distribution to law enforcement agencies in King County. 
"Distribution of the national stockpile of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) uses a “tiered” system for distribution. Law enforcement is not listed on any of the four tiers, so we are on our own in search of PPE. 
"King County law enforcement agency N95 face mask supplies were getting low until Facebook Seattle stepped up."

We can't thank all of the employees at Facebook Seattle enough for coming through at this time of need and providing first responders the personal protective equipment that we desperately need.
