Cherokee Brick donates medical supplies to Navicent Health

The company donated N95 masks, gloves, and suits. They regularly use the gear for their safety program.

MACON, Ga. — Cherokee Brick donated thousands of extra medical supplies to Navicent Health Tuesday.

The company donated N95 masks, gloves, and suits. They regularly use the gear for their safety program, but ended up getting more in a shipment than they needed.

Vice President of Operations Kate Peavy hopes anyone else who is able to help the medical community will do it. 

"I hope anybody else who got them would be willing to do the same, I think anybody who has them would be willing to do the same. All of our employees were behind it as well, and I can't imagine what the medical industry is facing, so our hearts and prayers are with all those involved," said Peavy.

Peavy says the company donated more than 2,000 masks and 12,000 gloves.
