DYMON donates 100K KN95 masks to protect Bruyère’s patients, residents, and frontline workers


Over the last 12 months, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted many gaps and bright spots in our healthcare systems and communities. DYMON Self Storage is a true leader and bright spot, donating more than 120,000 KN95 masks to protect Bruyère’s patients, residents, and frontline as part of their #DYMONMillionMasks initiative.

The DYMON Face Masks are certified, commercial grade, protective masks that have been made specifically for DYMON and have been rigorously tested here in Canada. They feature 95% particle filtration, making them far more effective than a standard cloth or surgical mask.

Steve Creighton, Senior Vice President for the DYMON Group of Companies, said DYMON was pleased to make the donation.

“With the rise and impact of COVID-19, DYMON wants to do everything we can to help our community,” said Steve. “We are happy that we can support Bruyère in their essential and life-changing work by providing 120,000 KN95 masks directly to their frontline.”

Thomas Hayes, Bruyère’s Senior Director of Human Resources and Infection Prevention and Control, said Bruyère’s frontline is grateful to DYMON because in these unprecedented times, Bruyère needs community support now more than ever,

“Thank you, DYMON, for the generous donation,” said Thomas. “These masks enable us to prepare for any situation and help us ensure that our staff, patients, and visitors always have access to personal protective equipment."
