“In the midst of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) has struck those in need. Because of this, residents of the Seacoast have come together to combat this issue.

When founder Javi Kalback became aware of this shortage, they knew they could make a difference in this time of need. Inspired by wanting to provide for healthcare workers, caregivers and correctional facilities, Seacoast Mask Makers was formed on Facebook and gained traction quickly. While the group was originally founded to service hospitals, they investigated other organizations that displayed a need for PPE, like face masks.”
