Taking care of our neighbors has always been important to Sherwin-Williams. In this unprecedented environment, we have looked for multiple ways to help those around us. Read more
At the end of March, the Cleveland Clinic launched the COVID-19 Community Response Campaign after community members asked what they could do to help those on the front line. Companies have donated, including a donation of 50,000 gloves and 10,000 N95 masks from Sherwin-Williams.
The Toledo, Ohio District collected and donated supplies to Hospitals in the area. This included Mercy Health Life Flight Network for St. Vincent Medical Center and St. Rita’s Medical Center. This network provides air and ground transportation to the critically injured through operations of four air medical helicopters, four mobile intensive care units and more than 150 employees making a difference in lives every day.
Sherwin-Williams has long supported University Hospitals (UH) and the community. This week, 10,000 new and unused N95 masks from Sherwin-Williams will provide critical PPE for UH’s front line caregivers. “Our thanks for their support during this global health crisis.“
Sherwin-Williams donated 3,000 N95 masks to Cleveland EMS workers. “This essential equipment comes at a time when there is a nationwide shortage of personal protective equipment for healthcare providers and first responders,” said Mayor Frank Jackson.
The Greater Cleveland COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund is designed to complement the work of public health officials and expand local capacity to address all aspects of the outbreak as efficiently as possible. The Rapid Response Fund will provide grant awards on a rolling basis to nonprofit organizations in Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties.
