Employees at Gloster Furniture in South Boston are producing masks for health care workers and other essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

“We are continuously looking at ways to help support the shortage of PPE that the medical community is experiencing. We are currently producing basic masks for donation to the police departments, fire stations, grocery stores and others that can be used to help protect themselves while not taking away from the proper medical equipment needed by our medical community,” said Philip Payne with Gloster Furniture.

If any individual or organization has a need for these masks, email ppe@gloster.com

“We will do our best to fill as many orders as possible,” said Payne.

He also said any requests for healthcare workers will go to the front of line and then they will look at filling the requests for the essential workers.
