MILWAUKEE — Two Milwaukee county hospitals will benefit from Bass Pro Shop's donation one million face masks.

Froedtert Hospital and Crossing Rivers Health will both receive masks from the donation. The two locations will receive 12,000 masks total.

"These heroic men and women continue to dedicate their lives to save the loved ones of others, and we are all honored to support them on behalf of everyone at Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s, and the communities we serve," said noted conservationist and Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris.

Bass Pro Shops teamed up with Convoy of Hope to gather these masks and distribute them to needing hospitals across the country.

According to a press release from Bass Pro Shops, "The donation will provide thousands of hard-to-find masks to every local community with a Bass Pro Shops or Cabela’s store, boat center, distribution center, and White River Marine Group manufacturing facility – over 200 communities in total."
