Fishman’s teams up with Mask Makers YYC to provide masks for essential workers.

Fishman’s has teamed up with Mask Makers YYC, a local community initiative, to provide thousands of masks for essential workers in our city.

Here’s how it works: new fabric donations are dropped off at Fishman’s. We clean the fabric which is then taken to Designer’s Choice Resource Centre, a professional seamstresses manufacturing store, where it is cut down into mask-sized pieces. These pieces are delivered to Mask Maker YYC volunteers who then sew the masks and deliver to medical workers.

While Mask Makers YYC has delivered thousands of masks already, there are orders in for more that 7,500 more.

Fishman’s is happy to be able to support these amazing community volunteers! Fabric donations can be dropped off at our 17th Ave & Garrison Woods locations.

Everyone is bringing their superpower to the table and working together and the response has been amazing. I think people feel helpless a little bit sitting at home wondering what they can do and this is a way they can contribute and give back. – Tasha Fishman
