As a leader in providing personal protective equipment, Mask Makers PPE is committed to giving back to the essential workers that have fought so hard for our country during this difficult time. It is our goal to ensure that everyone has access to the protective equipment that they need to stay personally safe, limit people’s exposure to the virus, and keep our communities healthy and prosperous.  

Our nation is in the fight of its life against the coronavirus, and we are still directly in the middle of this pandemic. Until we all embrace the notion of protecting ourselves and our communities together, we will still have a long way to go. The essential workers are people who are on the frontline working to keep this country stable in the face of all of this adversity. We want to pay tribute to those who are working tirelessly by helping the next generation of heroes.  

To further our vision of making the world a safer place, we are offering a scholarship to individuals who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to public health and safety.  

We recognize that education is an important foundation upon which the essential work of tomorrow is built upon, and we are happy to help fund the educational endeavors of outstanding individuals. 

By supporting our essential workers today, we are making an investment in a future that is brighter for everyone.
