JR Jensen Construction aids the Twin Ports community with PPE donation and contribution towards two area food shelves
Friday, May 08, 2020
Since the beginning of Governor Evers “Safer at Home” orders, JR Jensen has been fortunate to continue the majority of their operations as an essential business in the construction trades. In late March, JR Jensen was able to assist emergency responders and other healthcare professionals throughout the twin ports by donating their supply of much needed personal protective equipment item, N95 masks. Understanding the need and forecasted shortage of these masks across all healthcare networks, JR Jensen team quickly took an inventory of the highly regarded masks and prioritized with the given shortage that their supplies should be donated to a Duluth hospital and better be used on the front lines fighting the pandemic at hand. Hundreds of masks were immediately dropped off as soon as the equipment could be gathered and will help to protect both medical workers and patients.
Last week after hearing about the increased need for food assistance by residents throughout the twin ports driven by the ongoing impacts of COVID-19; JR Jensen leadership made the decision to financially support two select twin ports food pantries. A financial contribution of $20,000 was equally split between the Northwest Wisconsin Community Services Agency Food Pantry and the Vineyard Church - Fruit of the Vine Food Shelf. JR Jensen has also committed to a truck as well as driver to assist the Fruit of the Vine Food Shelf to reach those in need who may not have access to
transportation to pick up food themselves. Below are comments from both organizations:
