About Us:Masks for Money (MFM) is a newly created community initiative whose mission is job cre-ation. We create jobs by selling masks, made by a collective of local women, who have lost their employment due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Need - On Wednesday, April 15th Governor Cuomo announced a new Executive Order for New Yorkers to wear a face covering, when in public settings, where social distancing is difficult. This initiative is a Win - Win because we all need masks and the seam-stresses need income (employment).
How We Do It – In collaboration with the Community Resource Center (CRC), a local well-established non-profit, we have identified qualified seamstresses. Our seamstresses will make fabric face coverings/masks following a pattern and raw materials provided by Masks For Money. MFM collects completed masks, sanitizes them, and packages the face masks for you to purchase.
The Product - a homemade fabric face covering. These contoured face masks are perfect for every member of your family! We will make these out of two layers of 100% cotton with elastic for a comfortable fit. They can be washed and re-worn over and over.
About CRCCommunity Resource Center (formerly Hispanic Resource Center) is a 501 (c)(3) community-based organization founded in 1998 to promote the cultural, economic, educational and professional integration of immigrants to the already established larger community and to advocate for those in need. We aim to provide the tools to prepare new immigrant families to become self-sufficient and active members of the community. Clearly, the current COVID-19 crisis is having a devastating effect on us all – but for those with-out basic human and social services the crisis is even more profound. We hope we can count on you to create jobs for those negatively impacted by this pandemic! We are in this together!
