Date: April 17, 2020

It’s impossible to mask our appreciation for the stories of people and companies across Seattle and the Pacific Northwest going out of their way to help in any way possible during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Face masks in particular have been a popular item to produce at varying degrees of scale both for front-line workers and personal use. Whether it’s startups pivoting, big tech companies chipping in, or home hobbyists firing up 3D printers and sewing machines, the ingenuity and the intent are worthy of applause.
