Bedard partners to create, donate masks

Thursday, March 26, 2020

LEWISTON, Maine – Bedard Pharmacy & Medical Supplies has teamed with a local manufacturer, Allen Manufacturing, to make and distribute cloth face masks. Anyone who brings in unused N95 masks can trade those for cloth masks, which the provider expects to have available in its locations by March 27. The N95 masks will be distributed to front-line medical professionals, including those at area hospitals. The cloth masks will be available free to the elderly and other high-risk populations, as well as available for purchase for $5 with proceeds going toward expanding the PPE supply chain locally.
