Masks of Hope Has Donated Over 20,000 Masks Around The USA


Masks of Hope was started on March 18, 2020 in Rancho Mirage, California by Lee Jason Friend as a response to the need for masks to the grocery store his partner worked in. His intention was to make a dozen or so masks for the stores employees and give them for free.


Within a week, the requests for masks increased dramatically, so Lee Jason decided that he was going to need help. He put out a call to friends and family for help. Soon local news media became aware of his mission and after the broadcast volunteers began to surface.

It has now been over month since Masks of Hope started and since then Masks of Hope has made and donated over 20,000 masks to essential workers, medical professionals, law enforcements, first responders and those most in need. This has been made possible  through the countless hours of sewing, cutting and shipping by our volunteers and the generosity and support of donors.

We remain committed to still providing masks for free to those in need. If you would like to donate you may do so by visiting our Donate page or using our PayPal address,
