The Looptworks community never ceases to amaze and inspire. During our “Wear One, Share One” campaign, you stepped up to the challenge of keeping our neighbors safely covered through your mask purchases and donations. We pledged to match your mask purchases 1-to-1 with a mask donation to the team at Transition Projects, and you added $1,000 in direct contributions. All together we donated 380 high quality reusable masks to help the front line staff of Transitions Projects in their important work. Thank you all for your generous support.
Transition Projects offers programs, resources and tools to individuals through access to social services including case workers, healthcare, mentorship and housing, effectively creating a more just and equitable society that nurtures the principles of elevating oneself and each other. If we want a more beautiful world, it’s on us to build it and it’s on us to ensure everybody has a place in it. We’re so grateful for your continued support. Thank you.
"Transition Projects wants to extend its sincere thanks for all of the support Looptworks has provided. Masks help keep our front-line team and participants in our programmatic spaces safe. The more than 300 masks provided will be distributed immediately. COVID-19 has provided many challenges for our agency. We've had to adopt new policies to ensure that physical distancing and mask use guidelines are followed by everyone who enters through our doors. Our agency has pivoted to support our medically vulnerable neighbors experiencing homelessness by opening the Banfield Shelter Motel, a site serving 60 adults in a physically distanced space with on-site medical care. Luckily, we've been able to continue operations at our 15 programmatic sites. Community partners like Looptworks have made this work possibly by helping us meet urgent needs for protective gear. Thank you to everyone who donated to support this campaign. We encourage you to further extend your support of the tireless work of Transition Projects."

There's more work to be done! Our 1-to-1 mask donation campaign continues through our partnership with the NBA. For every Upcycled NBA Mask purchased, one will be automatically given to the The Boys and Girls Clubs of America youth and their volunteers. You can also contribute to mask donation directly. Donations made here will subsidize the cost of reusable masks for groups like Transition Projects and others who need them.
