San Antonio, TX (April 30, 2020) – On behalf of its employees and members, Firstmark Credit Union has donated critical supplies to support the medical community in San Antonio amid the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) crisis.
Firstmark was well prepared for the pandemic crisis with personal protective equipment (PPE) for their employees, including N95 masks. To help address the urgent need for supplies for frontline medical workers, Firstmark donated 500 N95 filtering facepiece respirators to The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio.
“In response to the national shortage of protective equipment, we wanted to be good stewards in our community and share supplies from our emergency reserve,” said Nathanael Tarwasokono, president and CEO of Firstmark Credit Union. “We recognize that we have a profound responsibility to help our community.”
The credit union has a strong relationship with the local children’s hospital. Tarwasokono currently serves on the foundation’s board, and Firstmark continues to raise funds to support children and families who are being cared for at the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio.
