Federal Ammunition, one of the Vista Outdoor family of companies, donated two cases of N-95 respirators masks to two health care facilities—Mercy Hospital and Cambridge Medical Center. Both are located near the companies Anoka, MN, headquarters and manufacturing plant.

"We are honored to help our first responders, as they are really the heroes in this time of crisis," said Jason Vanderbrink, President Ammunition, VISTA Outdoor.

The 200 masks are critical in protecting the professional who face the COVID-19 pandemic and, unlike cloth masks, they are FDA approved and regulated by the CDC for personnel during procedures to protect patients and health care professionals. Federal will be donating more masks from its factory in the next few days.

In fact, it’s expanded that mission during this unlikely time. After the COVID-19 storm clears the company’s aid will help each continue their veteran- and youth-oriented missions to explore, grow and heal in the outdoors. Here’s are a few of the latest to benefit from Vista’s focus.
