PEPPERELL – Pepperell-based 1A Auto more than donated medical gear to two local groups of first-responders.

The auto-parts giant donated more than 800 medical masks, gloves and a first-aid kit to the Groton Fire Department.

Tim Roussell, president of the Lowell Patrolmen’s Association, shows some of the equipment Lowell police received from 1A Auto.

Fire Chief Steele McCurdy gladly accepted the donation and said it was extremely helpful in helping his department cope with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Then, the company learned the Lowell Police Department was experiencing a shortage of masks, so 1A Auto donated 250 masks, gloves and a first-aid kit to the Lowell Patrolmen’s Association.

“Helping our first-responders and community is key to getting us all through this crisis,” 1A Auto CEO and co-founder Rick Green said. “Our team is working hard to do our part.

“These times are tough, and we were glad to be able to answer the call and help out the Groton Fire Department and Lowell Police Department,” Green added.
