Giving Back: University of Maryland Medical Center
Here at The Mask Project, we don't just sell you high-quality masks for wholesale prices — we also give back. What does that look like? It means that 50% of proceeds go right back to the community. And for us, that community is the New York City and tri-state area, hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, and it's just starting to get back on its feet.
A lot of companies talk about giving back, but we wanted to show you how it's actually happening at The Mask Project. Thanks to your mask purchases and generosity, we were able to donate 100 KN95 face masks to the University of Maryland Medical Center.
UMMC is a leading academic teaching hospital located in downtown Baltimore. They have a great reputation for innovation and progressive healthcare, and like many city hospitals in the U.S, they were hit hard with the coronavirus outbreak.
In times like these, every bit of kindness makes a difference. While 100 face masks might not sound like a lot, it actually means crucial protection for frontline healthcare workers who, in some cases, have resorted to reusing face masks due to supply shortages.
While the worst of the pandemic seems to be behind us, keeping safe in public as the country reopens is crucial. And even more important is appropriate face masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) for the frontline healthcare workers that continue to deal closely with the virus on a daily basis.
We were honored to make a donation of masks to UMMC, and you can help us make more donations like this! Purchase masks from us, and know that 50% of proceeds are going right back to the community.
