Here is a list of organizations/ businesses who are taking donations to make face masks for those on the frontlines of COVID-19 or donating to organizations in need:
Vickery Trading Company
"When you purchase Vickery Trading Co. products, you directly support the refugee women who make them. VTC is stepping up to help the fight against the Coronavirus. $8 will cover our Associates' labor for making 1 mask and the processing costs to get masks into the hands of first responders and medical professionals. The masks will then be donated to agencies that need them. Masks will be made from donated scrap fabric and elastic. For more information about fabric donation, please see our Facebook or Instagram profiles."

"Our healthcare workers are on the front-lines of the fight with Covid-19, and they're going to work without the supplies they need. We, like many of you, have digital fabrication equipment at our fingertips that can help with this issue. So let's unite, and make some face shields.
Directly inspired by the open-source plans by the team at The Good Mod in Portland, this medical face shield has been tweaked and prototyped so that it can be constructed in batches of 100 using a CNC router, a three-hole punch, and a tie.
If you are a maker with a CNC router, we need you. If you're a plastics supplier, we need you. Together, we can bridge the gap in a medical supply shortage and fight COVID-19 together.
If you are a healthcare worker, and you need a shield, please email email@example.com."

"With help from your mask purchases in the month of April, we are proud to announce that we are donating 3,000 protective face masks to local causes through our 1 for 1 commitment.
We worked with trusted contacts to evaluate the needs in our community, and are excited to support two important causes: @presbyteriannightshelter & @prisonfellowship. Both organizations have missions to empower and equip people to live out being the versions of themselves. If you are still interested in ordering a protective mask for yourself or a loved one, we have opened up our second round of pre-orders at: https://tribealive.com/shop/new-arrivals/protective-masks/"
