The non-profit organization created by MGA Entertainment’s CEO is joining the fight.

Operation Pac-Man, a non-profit organization created to help fight the spread of COVID-19 is beginning to fulfill its mission.

Established by Isaac Larian, chief executive officer and founder, MGA Entertainment, Operation Pac-Man has delivered more than 65,000 surgical, N95 and KN95 masks and face shields to 40 hospitals around the country. They also have successfully tested a new ventilator prototype and supported the 250-bed makeshift hospital in the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The team has ordered 2 million masks, 500,000 face shields and 300,000 goggles as well.

“Team MGA has worked around the clock to get Operation Pac-Man up and running, but there is still so much more to do,” says Larian. “I ask everyone to please help in any way you can to support. Any donation amount to Operation Pac-Man will provide more funds to purchase personal protective equipment for our fearless healthcare workers fighting for us.”

In addition, throughout the past week, the designers and engineers at MGAE and Little Tikes worked with a local hospital to test the MGAE ventilator prototype design. After a few modifications, it is now ready for production. The ventilators will be produced at the Little Tikes factory located in Hudson, Ohio, where the team is already re-tooling machines so that mass production can begin immediately.
