QBE North America will donate 95,000 3M standard ear loop face masks to hospitals around the country. "While this evolving situation is new, caring about the health and well-being of our employees, customers, partners and communities is not new—it's part of our culture,” Todd Jones, CEO of QBE North America, said in a statement. "This donation serves as a sincere thank you to our healthcare workers, who are working tirelessly on the front lines of this battle." (Photo: QBE) (Photo: QBE)
