What to know

A Note on Our Masks

Our tech pack for fabric face masks is NOT an N95 or surgical grade face mask. If you have N95 or sterile surgical grade supplies, we urge you to consider donating these to hospitals in need as they are the first line of defense.

We know there is a lot of information out there and guidance may change in the future, but please let us know if you have any questions.

A few items to note:

  • The tech pack was derived from the Deaconess prototype and we have verified recommendations for 100% Cotton.

  • There is no pocket for a filter - the donated masks should be used on top of N95 or sterile surgical masks.

  • Prior to use, wash in hot water with detergent (sanitization setting on washing machine if possible).

Galen Medial Center N.A.bld Fabric Mask to School

Updates: Seven months in and back to school

Next week marks our 7 month anniversary running the Make a Mask initiative and the Buy a Mask, Give Many program. As one of the first to offer a free mask tech pack and donation request programs for communities in need, we are proud to have supplied over 7,500 masks to firefighters, Indigenous communities, funeral homes, nursing homes, jails, the US Army, homeless shelters, women's shelter, teachers, and childcare centers across the USA.
As we move into fall, many are prepping for increased exposure from going back to school but, with a waitlist of over 15K masks, there is still time to help and more to do! Contact us to donate masks or consider updating your mask collection with a Buy a Mask, Give Many purchase. Each purchase goes towards labor and materials for mask donations.

Venice Family Clinic
[N.A.bld's] generosity while we respond to the coronavirus pandemic means that we can best be prepared to protect and heal our community. We are working together to keep our primary clinics open, continue our essential services, and build our resources to address the emerging needs so that we can serve as many as people as possible.
by Naveena Ponnusamy, Chief Development and Communications Officer, CA

Many thanks from recipients!

We wanted to share a very generous note of appreciation with our donors from one mask recipient, the Venice Family Clinic - a health home for 28,000 people a year, providing access not
only to quality primary health care. With more than 75% of their patients living below the federal poverty level, and 16% of them experiencing
homelessness, their patients are among the most vulnerable in society.
We still have over 27K outstanding mask requests! As COVID19 cases rise, continue helping us give to these great care centers and those in need! Buy a mask to give many today.

Masks for those in need.

We are shipping out today a batch of masks made in Colorado to the Androscoggin County Jail in Maine.
As requester Karen Burgess notes, a lot of people neglect jail and prison populations but they - and those who care for them - are usually overlooked and can be especially vulnerable without the ability to social distance.
