OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE
Protecting lives one stitch at a time
Mask Making Program
The IRONMAN Foundation
Their mission: "The IRONMAN Foundation creates positive, tangible change in race communities through grant funding and volunteerism."
Stitched Together received a generous grant from the IRONMAN Foundation as part of their IRONAID COVID-19 Support Fund. Their partnership will allow Stitched Together to launch the next phase of our face mask sewing movement.
Stitched Together also received a donation of 1,800 race t-shirts from the IRONMAN Foundation after their wide variety of events were cancelled for COVID-19. Since the fabric is 100% cotton, all the t-shirts will be repurposed as the fabric for all of Stitched Together's face masks starting Fall, 2020.
Thank you for your generosity that is making it possible to protect lives, one stitch at a time.
