McDonald’s Donates One Million N95 Masks Across Illinois

CHICAGO (AP) – McDonald’s will donate one million N95 masks across Illinois as the state battles a growing number of coronavirus cases, the fast food chain announced Monday.

The masks will first go to first responders and healthcare professionals in McDonald’s home city and state where critical protective gear is in short supply, according to a release.

Of the one million masks, 750,000 will be distributed in Chicago, where the company’s global headquarters is located, and another 250,000 will go to the rest of the state.

McDonald’s previously donated $1 million and 400,000 KF94 masks to Illinois’ COVID-19 fund as the world’s largest hamburger chain closed its restaurants for dine-in, offering only drive-thru, delivery and takeout in most locations across the country.
