McKenzie Schools gain $200,000


Blueair, a world-leader in air purification for home and professional use, announced it has donated more than $1 million in cash to U.S. children’s hospitals, schools and a Chicago-nonprofit in alignment with Giving Tuesday 2020.

At a time when more than ever people are in need, a recent Gallup poll found that fewer people are able to provide support through charitable giving – with giving expected to be down nearly 10% this year. Blueair was founded on the principle of providing access to clean air for children – for the next generation. And in a year where air quality is so important, Blueair wanted to give back even more to communities hit hardest.

“As a business we were fortunate to thrive this year given we provide a product that keeps consumers healthy at the precipice of clean air concern. It is Blueair’s mission to provide access to clean air, which was incredibly important this year due to the impacts of the global pandemic and rapidly changing climate,” said Andy Lu, General Manager, North America and Head of Global eCommerce for Blueair. “This has been an extremely challenging year for many, and at Blueair we see it as our responsibility to give back and support those communities in need.”

In Oregon, three schools in the McKenzie School District and six schools in the Phoenix-Talent School District have been drastically impacted by wildfires. Funds to these schools will go to bolstering remote learning capabilities and to the families impacted by the wildfires, many of whom have lost their homes and belongings. At McKenzie, the donated $200,000 will go toward improving the school’s telecommunications and online learning.
