Employees of software giant Salesforce delivered 9,000 masks to the University of California at San Francisco, CEO Marc Benioff announced Sunday. The health-focused school put out a public call for donations, saying its front-line coronavirus responders were in “urgent need” of masks, gloves and other supplies.

“We are working hard across all of our resources & relationships to deliver an additional 5 million masks this week plus additional” personal protective equipment, Benioff said on Twitter.

Apple says it has also been working to source supplies for health workers fighting the coronavirus, which has sickened more than 300,000 people across the world. The company is donating “millions of masks for health professionals in the US and Europe,” CEO Tim Cook tweeted Saturday. He did not say how many masks the company had already contributed or where exactly the gear would be distributed.
