SEATTLE, WA – 12-03-2018 ( — Product valued at more than $50,000 donated to Chico Unified School District. 

WellAir and distribution partner Hillyard today announced they are donating a supply of air purification units valued at more than $50,000 to help improve indoor air quality for rescue personnel and survivors of the Camp Fire which caused widespread devastation near Chico, CA earlier this month. 

Upon learning about the dangerous indoor air quality in schools and the outbreaks of Norovirus at several shelters in Chico, WellAir was compelled to offer several dozen portable air purification units to schools and shelters that can be plugged into any outlet and put into operation immediately. The donated product – made by Novaerus, WellAir’s flagship healthcare brand – are medical-grade units that employ patented ultra-low energy plasma technology to safely and effectively reduce airborne particulate like smoke and dust, while destroying airborne bacteria and viruses that can lead to the spread of infections like norovirus and influenza. 

“WellAir and Hillyard are here to support the Chico Unified School District to improve indoor air quality and any shelters that need help preventing the spread of infection,” said Kassandra Keller, SVP of Business Development at WellAir. “We hope this modest donation improves the environmental conditions in some of the affected areas where people are suffering from dangerous levels of air pollution and the spread of infection.”

As the recovery process continues over the months, WellAir and Hillyard are prepared to assist with additional in-kind donations as needed to help improve indoor air quality.
