BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On July 23rd, Rock Ledge Group donated 100,000 N95 Respirator Masks to Boston Children's Hospital. The donation will be used to protect the more than 9,000 employees at the facility as they work to combat Covid-19.
Healthcare workers around the world continue to navigate patient care through the pandemic, while experiencing a shortage of personal protective equipment. Rock Ledge Group's CEO Noel Rix and his partners Jesse Dixon, Kyle Townson, and George Valvanis, state there is nothing more gratifying than to have the opportunity to give back to the community during this crucial time of need.
"As a group we felt compelled to do our part locally,” said Rix. "Helping children in need is what’s most important. We’d also like to notably acknowledge Dave Walsh, whose extraordinary effort throughout this partnership has been nothing short of remarkable.”
"We at Boston Children’s Hospital highly value our relationship with Rock Ledge Group. We appreciate them going above and beyond, by making this significant contribution during these challenging times," said Dave Walsh, Director of Supply Chain Administration at Boston Children’s Hospital. “They have become an important partner in our supply chain,” followed Walsh.

“Being aligned with the world’s greatest hospital is a privilege,” said Rix. “Our mission from the start was always to be there for our community, and we strive to be in a position where we can continually be helping hospitals and healthcare organizations at both a local and national level.”
