Polaris Donates 509 and KLIM Goggles to Support Goggles for Docs

Polaris Inc. announced it has donated nearly 1,300 pairs of 509 and KLIM goggles to support Goggles For Docs, providing eyewear to healthcare workers battling the COVID-19 pandemic.

 Polaris Inc. announced it has donated nearly 1,300 pairs of 509 and KLIM goggles to support Goggles For Docs, providing eyewear to healthcare workers battling the COVID-19 pandemic.

This donation comes at a critical time as healthcare workers and first responders face a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) needed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The donation of nearly 1,300 pairs of goggles equate to a total MSRP of $72,200 and were distributed to hospitals and medical facilities across the nation including AMR Riverside in California, Newark Division of Fire & EMS in Ohio and Emory University Hospital in Georgia, among others.

“During these unprecedented times, we have seen so many examples of healthcare workers and first responders working in the most demanding circumstances despite the lack of PPE for the greater good,” said Tom Delanoy, 509 founder and president. “Working with Goggles For Docs to provide eyewear for those fighting on the frontlines of this pandemic seemed like a great way for us to contribute and we are humbled to be part of the solution.”

Goggles For Docs​ is a grassroots effort to provide healthcare workers with ski, snowboard, snowmobile and off-road goggles as they treat COVID-19 patients, offering a solution to the shortages of healthcare eye protection. As of April 4, more than 29,000 goggles have been shipped across the country. Dozens of new medical centers are being vetted daily by dedicated Goggles For Docs volunteers as the need for more goggles continues to grow.

“Goggles For Docs was created to help mitigate the lack of eye protection for medical workers and first responders during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Jon Schaefer, Goggles For Docs founder. “The need for goggles increases daily and we wouldn’t be able to meet demands without the generosity of brands like Polaris, 509 and KLIM who have stepped up to provide much needed eyewear.”

509 and KLIM are a part of Polaris’ broad portfolio of snowmobile and off-road riding gear, apparel and accessory offerings.
