The Give & Go Foundation has teamed up with Justin Skaggs at Wood Lacrosse Sticks, the Kohelet yeshiva school in Pennsylvania, and LaxAllStars.com to host the #ShieldedWarriorCampaign, a COVID-19 Relief Fund to support the manufacturing of reusable Face Shields for medical professionals.
Each $5 donation buys one reusable face shield that fits the needs of medical professionals worldwide. Every face shield purchased will be donated to a hospital in need of COVID-19 relief.
Justin explains further:
My name is Justin Skaggs and I am a Lacrosse Stick Maker out of Philadelphia. I am able to convert some of the tools I use in my wood shop to produce high quality re-usable face shields for medical professionals trying to fight this global pandemic.
I’m working with the talented people at Kohelet yeshiva. My friend Dan is the Fabrication lab coordinator and art teacher at Kohelet, and he has compiled the resources of various scholastic shop programs, craftsman, and creators within the greater Philadelphia area to facilitate production of these face shields that he and his wife Stephanie Designed. I’ll put these designs up for download on the donation page, in case you want to help.
I’m a builder, and this is the only way I can proactively help. All donations will go to materials. All of my time and the time of those who are making these items will be donated. Any donations that are not immediately needed for materials will be diverted to the CDC Foundation so that they can be timely and do the most good. Just add however many masks you want to donate and we will distribute them to the hospitals that need them the most.
Please join us in supporting this cause by donating funds for a face shield now!
