When the State of Kentucky began releasing the Healthy at Work guidelines with the requirement for employees to wear face masks, the City of Paducah submitted an order for 200 masks from local supplier, Triangle Enterprises. Not long after placing the order, Triangle Enterprises President/CEO J. P. Kelly contacted Mayor Brandi Harless and City Manager Jim Arndt to let them know that Triangle wanted to donate the masks to the City. The donation arrived today and will be distributed to the City’s employees.
Mayor Harless said, “I want to express my gratitude to Triangle Enterprises for this thoughtful donation. The generosity of our businesses and residents continue to amaze me each and every day. We live in a strong, resilient, and extremely compassionate community.”
Kelly said, “Triangle’s converting production towards face masks was a way to keep people working. Our donation of the masks is our way of saying thanks to those working to get our community back to normal.”
Triangle Enterprises has been in operation since 1954 with its main offices and warehouse complex headquartered in Paducah. To order cloth face masks, call Triangle at 270-444-4993. For more information about Triangle’s products and services, visit http://www.triangle-co.com/.
