Carrier Donates 500 Air Purifiers to East Palestine Residents

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Residents in East Palestine who are concerned about the air in their homes will receive assistance through a $152,000 donation by Carrier through Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley.

Carrier, a global company with $20.4 billion in net sales in 2022, donated 500 air purifiers, which will be distributed to those on a list at East Palestine First Church of Christ.

The church has been vetting and identifying low-income residents impacted by the Feb. 3 train derailment in the village who are interested in having an air purifier to make certain the air they are breathing in their homes is as clean as possible.
