I am a board member of the Ossining Micro Fund. We are a 501(c) (3) organization that makes interest free loans to Ossining residents who qualify & have an expenses that falls outside their monthly income. We serve a very vulnerable low income population & would like to get masks for them all of them. We have 81 active loans & many are having even more problems now. Each could be between 1-5 family members. If we could order 250 adult mask, we have some mask makers in Ossining making kids & adult masks but it is slow going as so many sewers are living in the Village & many are sick. I have about 50 kids size left but give them out all day to anyone I see out that’s gave isn’t covered.
