Sunvilla donates surplus face masks to senior care facility

Story Cottage residents and caregivers pose with their new masks.

Sunvilla Corp. has donated extra face masks to Story Cottage, a care giving facility for seniors with memory impairments, that was facing shortages in the wake of COVID-19

Indiana-based Story Cottage, noted for its home-style living and low patient-to-caregiver ratio, will use the donated masks to keep both caregivers and patients safe throughout the pandemic.

Sunvilla is continuing to manufacture and distribute outdoor products during the COVID-19 outbreak. The safety of the company’s employees is being maintained through work from home efforts, skeleton crews, social distancing and the use of appropriate personal protective equipment like masks.
