Artisan Designed Reusable Mask Company Teams up with The Shop Floor Theatre Company

To distribute Free Masks to Vulnerable Groups in Flint, Michigan

FLINT, Mich. - Michimich -- [Flint, MI]: The Shop Floor Theatre Company and mAsk The People, an International organization that engages community artists to design stylish reusable masks, is distributing FREE masks to the many vulnerable communities in Flint, Michigan, to help in the fight against COVID 19. "Masks are a critical part of keeping our community safe during this Pandemic, and being able to provide proper PPE for our youth programs is vital for the safety of our participants, staff, and the greater community we serve!" says Kendrick Jones, Executive Director at Shop Floor Theatre Company. "Being able to team up with an organization such as mAsk The People, not only will help encourage our youth to be a part of the collective fight against the virus, but will also ensure they can continue to express their individuality and creativity in a new way." Garvey Chui, the co-founder of mAsk The People, who is a behavior change consultant and has experience in emergency relief, set up a panel of experts who helped her create effective, accessible, and sustainable masks for the public. She then teamed up with a diverse group of talented local designers across North America who generously donate their talent to help create masks for non-profits, such as The Shop Floor Theatre Company, and their recipients. "These Masks are an important tool in the fight of any communicable virus, and the real challenge is to change peoples' behavior and attitude towards wearing one. This is why we wanted to help make wearing masks fun and another way to express one's identity through bespoke designs, hence why we say Mask Your Face, Not Your Style!" Chui adds. "As an alumni of the REALITY program, we're really grateful to the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, who provided us with financial support to donate these critical masks to the communities in Flint, MI." Chui adds. For the Shop Floor Theatre Company this partnership will help them keep their programs accessible to their many vulnerable kids. "For our kids, the difference between success and failure is access to these needed materials, and we are thankful for Garvey at mAsk The People, as they saw a need and stepped in to fill it." states Kendrick Jones.
