Donate A Mask – Mission
Our mission is to provide medical facilities and workplace workers a means to protect themselves while on the job. We recognize that there is a shortage of face masks across the country as a result of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.
We aim to create jobs for stay-at-home moms and dads and those whose lives have been effected by the disease by offering meaningful work and a fair wage.
We encourage everyone to help protect our environment by purchasing our eco-friendly, reusable and rewashable face masks.
For every mask that is purchased by our customers, we will donate a new one to a medical facility or workplace in need.

How NIAM is responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic
The health and safety of our community, volunteers, staff and partners comes first. The COVID-19 pandemic is not just a health crisis, it is a social and economic justice issue. We recognize that we have a responsibility to protect our community by following the recommendations of our public health and safety officials, including the World Health Organization and the CDC.
- Our staff, volunteers and partners are required to work from home from now until April 12 or until further notice depending on our local and state government requirements
- We are suspending all planned events of any size for the next three months
Below are some resources that you may find helpful during these difficult times:

- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – The CDC is the official government resource center and offers guidelines and best practices for Healthcare Professionals and the general public.
