Wiley X® Continues to Expand Donations of PPE to American Red Cross to Further Fight Against COVID-19

Publish date:

Livermore, CA (Oct 20, 2020) - Wiley X®, the leading premium protective eyewear brand to retail, safety, and government markets, has been hard at work creating and distributing personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect those on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Building upon its initial effort of more than 10,000 KN95 masks for local support, and 20,000 face shields to eye care professionals throughout the country, Wiley X is partnering with American Red Cross to donate another 80,000 units, consisting of face masks, goggles and face shields to be distributed to areas with the greatest need. With more than 30 years of experience designing and manufacturing protective eyewear and equipment for United States military personnel, Wiley X has been focused on donations locally and nationally to support those supporting our nation.

Veteran-founded and family-owned, Wiley X has chosen to work directly with the American Red Cross to expand and bolster its noble efforts in fighting COVID-19 in the United States. These will be provided to those on the front lines working with hospitals, law enforcement officers, fire personnel, and healthcare professionals.

In addition to the donations, Wiley X is operational and actively taking orders for all of its protective eyewear on www.wileyx.com.

"We are proud to partner with the American Red Cross in the battle against COVID-19,” said Myles Freeman, Jr., Co-Owner of Wiley X. “We have a long-lasting history of supporting those on the front lines and it will always be something we take seriously and prioritize as part of who we are and what we believe in.”
