MILWAUKEE — Molina Healthcare of Wisconsin is donating 7,000 N95 masks to frontline workers across the state, in order to bolster their effort amid rising coronavirus cases in Wisconsin.

The masks will go to social service agencies, federally qualified health centers, and fire, police and ambulance stations in Green Bay, Kenosha, Milwaukee and Racine. Molina says it is also donating cloth masks to community-based organizations in Milwaukee.

The company did not name specific groups at this time.

Molina is a national health care company based in California, but has locations in Wisconsin.

“Molina is grateful for the important work health care providers and community nonprofit professionals are doing for people throughout Wisconsin during the COVID-19 health crisis,” said Scott Johnson, president of Molina Healthcare of Wisconsin. “The donation of N95 masks is a way Molina can partner with professionals on the frontline, safeguarding them as they protect Wisconsin’s most vulnerable populations.”
