N95 particulate respirator masks are in high demand right now for those who are on the front lines of the coronavirus. Numerous companies have been doing their part to step up and offer masks to those in need, and that includes Nintendo.

The Big N has donated thousands (the article is unclear as to whether it's 9,500 or 95,000) of those masks to the Eastside Fire and Rescue in North Bend, Washington. Nintendo originally had the masks for emergency preparedness planning, but felt they would be better used by the Fire and Rescue teams.
