Barco Uniforms, Los Angeles, Calif., a recognized leader of design innovation in the premium health care apparel industry, has announced its pledge to donate 10,000 scrubs to health care professionals each month for the duration of the coronavirus pandemic. Donations will be prioritized and distributed based on requests made by health care teams who submit a scrub donation request on Barco’s website: https://www.barcouniforms.com/.
“We are launching our scrub donation program to show our sincere thanks and demonstrate our immense gratitude to health care professionals all over the country, all of whom have been so heroic in the fight against this pandemic,” said Barco president and CEO David Murphy. “We are here to support the health care workers as they take care of all of us.”
Barco Uniforms has served health care professionals for more than 90 years and has been built on the belief that those in the health care and services industries are multidimensional individuals with their own experiences of risk, vulnerability and struggle. The company’s “Made to Matter” philosophy was created to give back and honor the spirit of health care professionals around the world. “Serving those who serve others has been a pillar of our legacy for over 90 years and at the forefront of everything we do, but these words have never had greater strength and deeper meaning than they do today during these unprecedented times,” Murphy added.
In 2008, Barco’s Nightingales Foundation (BNF) was founded by Barco’s chairman of the board, Michael Donner, and his wife Frida in hopes of lifting up the lives of children around the world, in honor of health care professionals. For more details, visit www.barcosnightingales.org.
