1 million medical masks donated by Bass Pro founder.

Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris has announced he will donate one million FDA approved ASTM Level 1 Face Masks to first responders and healthcare workers on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19.

This donation comes amid a shortage of masks and other PPE due to increased demand during the current pandemic. These masks will help tens of thousands of workers that are at high risk of contracting the disease.

“We are extremely grateful to our nation’s healthcare workers serving on the frontlines of this unprecedented global health crisis,” said Johnny Morris. “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.”
