BALTIMORE — The Maryland School for the Blind has donated five cases of N95 masks to Baltimore's first responders who are on the front lines helping to fight COVID-19 in Maryland.

Staff discovered the facemasks in a supply closet in one of the buildings on the school’s campus and brought it to the attention of their Superintendent, W. Robert Hair.

He immediately contacted the Baltimore City Fire Department and Johns Hopkins Hospital regarding donating the critical personal protective equipment to Baltimore’s first responders.

The school has also stepped up to help the community by opening a daycare center on its campus to assist in the childcare of Maryland’s first responders and essential personnel, which opened March 30.
