Dealing with the impacts of the coronavirus has created significant impacts globally, but thanks to a recent donation of $50,000 from EagleClaw Midstream, nurses and doctors and emergency responders in the Midland area are better equipped to help people in need with much needed personal protective equipment.
EagleClaw Midstream made donations to hospitals in Midland and Odessa and the emergency response organization in Reeves county to provide much-needed personal protective equipment for front-line responders and paramedics, as well as fuel to transport critically-ill coronavirus patients by air ambulance, if needed.
“One of our core values is safety, and we saw an opportunity to step in and provide some help with ensuring the safety of those on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic,” said Jamie Welch, president and CEO. “Having the right personal protective equipment and working safely is part of how we operate, and the nurses and doctors and paramedics helping those who are ill need PPE to continue to do their jobs and avoid getting sick themselves. We are glad to help.”
With the majority of its employees in the Midland area, Welch said it was natural for the company to look first to providing support to area hospitals and emergency response units.
The hospitals in Midland and Odessa will each receive $22,500 from EagleClaw Midstream, and Reeves County emergency response will receive $5,000 to purchase fuel and PPE as needed.
Welch added that EagleClaw will remain in contact with local elected officials and community leaders to keep abreast of any new or emerging needs around their coronavirus response efforts.
