A Million Masks Donated

Publish date:

Bass Pro Shops teamed with the national charity Convoy of Hope with plans to donate 1 million face masks to healthcare facilities and first responders throughout the United States.

“The generosity of Johnny Morris will make a significant impact in the battle against coronavirus across North America,” Convoy of Hope spokesman Jeff Nene said in a statement.

Convoy of Hope will assist in identifying areas where supplies are in demand and will help to distribute the masks. The donations will go to more than 200 communities where White River Marine Group has business interests — a Bass Pro Shops or Cabela’s, as well as the company’s boat and distribution centers and manufacturing facilities.

“We are extremely grateful to our nation’s healthcare workers serving on the frontlines of this unprecedented global health crisis,” said Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris in the statement. “We are all honored to support them on behalf of everyone at Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s, and the communities we serve.”
