Help us provide reusable cloth masks to refugee families in Los Angeles

Last updated 

The CDC issued new guidance recommending all people wear masks when entering public settings like grocery stores and pharmacies. Many refugee families cannot access masks and do not have the means to make them. Help us provide reusable cloth face masks so refugee families can safely navigate public settings in Los Angeles.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Provide your own material to make the masks
  • Wash all masks before putting them in bags for distribution
  • All masks should be mailed to our office, and our teams will then distribute to families with instructions on how to wear

NEXT STEPS:

  • Contact us at carly.boos [at] rescue.org for more details
