In the early spring of 2020, COVID-19 was quickly spreading across our communities. Masks weren't yet readily available in stores or online like they are today, and most online vendors had them on backorder.
We decided to connect people who knew how to make masks with those who needed them. A year later, 300+ mask makers and donors made and shipped more than $1 million worth of masks for free across all 50 states.
Now that a vaccine is widely available across the U.S., and most people can find a mask easily locally and online, we have paused MaskHelpers.org.
We want to thank all makers and donors for giving their valuable time, skills, funds, stamps, envelopes, fabric and other supplies to help so many people and make MaskHelpers.org possible. You are amazing!
