NOW: Couple donates 10,000 N-95 masks to hospital, first responders

A husband and wife are donating 10,000 N-95 face masks to Elkhart's COVID-19 community response fund.

Through Bill Fenech's business, Barletta Boats, he discovered he knew of a company making the N-95 masks and obtained 10,000 of them.

The masks will be donated to Elkhart General, local nursing homes and first responders.

“We want to do our part. We’re fortunate. It sucks for everybody. My business is suffering but I’ve been fortunate enough hopefully that my cash position is fine so other people aren’t in that same position and so we want to do our part," Fenech said.

Fenech said he is hoping to get more masks and distribute them to agencies that need them.
