PORTLAND, OR – March 24, 2020 – As reported by the NYT, CNN, and others, there’s a nationwide shortage of protective masks for healthcare professionals. With the news of doctors willing to use bandanas as protection, and an influx of requests from doctors at private practices asking for help, Chrome Industries is using its own resources and mobilizing makers to rally and sew masks for the front line of healthcare.

Chrome is actively promoting the mask making effort, providing home-based makers with the design, pattern, and instructions to make masks at home. Anyone interested in supporting the project can email gearfitters@chromeindustries.com to get the information.

“The lack of masks, gowns, and eye protection is limiting the ability of medical workers to fight the COVID-19 — and putting their lives at risk. There is a basic need on the front lines, and our community has an opportunity to help,” said Steve McCallion, President of Chrome Industries, “We all can help make a difference.”
