We want to support our healthcare workers by sharing a request from the County Executive’s office. MBA Pierce is putting out a call to action for our builders, remodelers, painters, and everyone else who may have protective masks – Please consider donating N95 masks so they can be distributed to local healthcare professionals. Currently, due to medical mask shortages, nurses and doctors are reusing single use masks throughout the day. Our staff may be reaching out, and we are accepting donations at the MBA Pierce office. Please call 253-272-2112 prior to stopping by. These masks will need to be unopened and unused in their original packaging.
****UPDATE: Due to the recently issued Stay-at-Home order, the MBA Pierce office is closed. However, staff is still working remotely and available by email. If you would still like to make a donation, click here for information about to who contact at our local hospitals.
