The COVID-19 pandemic brought to light the shortage of medical-grade face masks available for medical professionals. Additionally, non-surgical grade masks are needed by vulnerable people and those who are engaged in activities that still bring them in contact with others.

A month ago, CAIR-LA partnered with AST Sportswear to ask our community to help answer the call to raise funds to produce as many non-surgical grade masks as possible.

Alhamdulillah, you answered the call.

Through your generous donations, our partnership was able to produce and donate more than 10,000 non-surgical masks to:

  • Senior centers
  • Food banks
  • Homeless shelters
  • Fast-food workers
  • Governmental organizations

Thank you for your assistance to help us support essential workers, the most vulnerable and those at the frontlines.
