Bozeman company donates masks across western Montana

A Bozeman-area company flew more 250 donated shield masks to groups across western Montana Thursday morning.

Bridger Aerospace manufactures defense equipment, but when COVID-19 cases started spreading in Montana, they made changes at their factory to begin producing face masks.

Bridger Aerospace CEO Tim Sheehy said they’re working to make masks and donate masks to any hospital, clinic, fire department and health care worker in need.
