McGill Restoration Initiates Global Emergency COVID-19 Relief Effort

McGill Restoration ( initiated a global emergency relief effort on March 30 to get KN95 respirators and surgical masks in the hands of hospitals and healthcare workers as they put themselves at risk on the front line, screening and treating individuals with COVID-19.

“Some might see the daily rise of COVID-19 cases and forget these numbers represent a mother, father, a brother, or a sister,” said Tim McGill, owner and president of McGill Restoration. “Every day, our healthcare workers are on the front lines treating COVID-19 and risking their lives. When our healthcare workers become ill, we all suffer and fighting this virus becomes more difficult. In order to protect workers and also to maximize capacity in hospitals, we need to get them the necessary personal protective equipment to ensure their own safety.”

Both KN95 respirators and surgical masks are needed. KN95 masks are used to protect the medical professionals. Surgical masks are used to protect the patients and also extend the life of the KN95 respirators.

To get these in the hands of healthcare workers, McGill Restoration partnered with a fellow Entrepreneur’s Organization member to secure manufacturing space with an organization in China to produce the masks. Additionally, McGill partnered with DSV Global Support and Logistics to air freight masks from Shanghai to Cleveland at cost. Once in Cleveland, McGill Restoration will transport masks to hospital systems and businesses across the U.S.

To fund this global COVID-19 emergency relief effort, McGill Restoration donated $50,000 and started a GoFundMe campaign to promote and collect additional donations from other individuals and local businesses. A total of $107,465 was raised which equated to 163,200 masks, and 118,400 of these masks will be delivered to hospitals in Nebraska.
