RICHMOND, Va. -- VCU Health received a donation of 2,300 N95 masks from CoStar Group on Friday in support of the fight against COVID-19.

The masks will be used by providers, nurses and other team members engaged in patient care to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

"This donation of KN95 respirator masks is part of CoStar Group’s continuous commitment to the Richmond community," CoStar Group said in a release. "In 2016, CoStar Group selected Richmond to headquarter its research operations and has since maintained a strong presence in the community."

“We are committed to supporting our community and front line workers now more than ever,” said CoStar Group Founder and CEO, Andrew Florance. “As we all do our part to prevent the spread of the virus, it is our duty to help provide essential personnel with materials that keep them safe as they serve our community.”
