Help Needed

Tasks that need to get done

Public Relations and Marketing: The greatest impact is made when we are able to spread awareness on a large scale. A PR professional is required for pitching and coordinating with local media on stories and interviews. We will need someone with experience writing and editing press releases, newsletters and websites. Must have access to media and Associated Press network.

Legal: A GoFundMe account has been setup allowing us to leverage our unique supplier network to purchase masks. We will need legal support in creating a non profit organization.
