Mooresville, NC: Local Mooresville residents and business owners Todd and Tara Youngblood, on Wednesday,
generously donated a combined total of 14,000 N95 masks to the Christian Mission and the HealthReach Community Clinic both located in Mooresville, NC.
Tara, the CEO of Kryo Inc, utilized her connections with China to import the masks and make the donations on behalf of her company. Kryo Inc is the creator of ChiliSleep products. The couple chose to donate the masks locally to support the community they call home. The HealthReach Community Clinic, which provides free medical care and medications to uninsured, low-income residents of Iredell County and the Christian Mission, which provides crisis assistance to families in need both issued requests and were ecstatic to learn they would be receiving such large donations.
“These masks will allow our clients, volunteers, and employees to be protected as we continue to provide essential
services and meet the needs of our community. It also gives us peace of mind knowing we have the proper
equipment for months to come. We are so grateful for such a generous donation” – said Amy Lacount, Executive
Director of the Christian Mission.
“We could not believe our great fortune when Senator Sawyer’s office told us this incredible news. Our clinic has
resumed serving patients in person and even provides COVID-19 testing on-site. We simply could not provide
these services without N95 masks. Thanks to the Youngbloods, we are now well-equipped to serve our neighbors
in need!” – said Sabrina Niggel, Executive Director of the HealthReach Community Clinic.
Senator Vickie Sawyer (R-Iredell, Yadkin), who helped coordinate the distribution effort, was there to deliver the masks alongside Ms. Youngblood.
“I’m honored to know Todd and Tara as friends and am grateful to have been included in this effort. Thank you
for this generous donation allowing both the Clinic and the Mission to continue serving our community safely,”
said Senator Sawyer.
It is the Youngblood’s hope that their donations will help both facilities continue to operate safely while providing vital services to the community.
“We’ve chosen these two entities because they share our passion for providing for others and giving more than
receiving. We hope that with this donation, we can increase access to quality protective essentials, regardless of
income or financial situation.” – Tara Youngblood
