The rising number of COVID-19 cases in Connecticut is concerning. Who would have ever imagined that a simple three-ply paper mask would become one of the most talked about pieces of equipment in the world? But for children going back to school this fall, they represent safety – alleviating their fears of contracting this horrible disease.
"Masks for Heroes" was established in April of 2020 to provide free surgical masks to first responders, health care providers and others on the front lines battling the spread of Covid 19. We subsequently expanded our efforts to "Masks for CT" to service any resident in need of help, distributing over 1.5 million disposable masks to over 140 towns and cities. We are pleased to announce our next focus will be protecting students as they return to school. In conjunction with the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven, Masks4School.org will distribute 25,000 cloth, reusable youth masks, free of charge, to various school districts throughout the state.
Thank you to our event sponsors, partners and volunteers! We could not have done this without you.
Masks4School is a grassroots volunteer group that has distributed over one million surgical masks to to 160 towns and cities throughout CT. Masks4School is an arm of Masks for Heroes, distributing masks for the general public. Both efforts are conducted in partnership with the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven and 100% of your tax deductible donation will go toward protecting the people of CT.
