Updated: Jul 14, 2020
Aspire Appalachia, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Breathitt County, Kentucky, has provided over 2,000 hand-crafted cloth face masks at no-cost to individuals in the Eastern Kentucky region.
The hand-crafted masks are made possible through the dedication of several local volunteers and businesses like Maddy Doodle Designs of Jackson, Kentucky., Hickory Hill Recovery Center of Emmalena, Kentucky., and Dixon Upholstery. Sourcing for materials is also made possible in part by generous contributions from local individuals and businesses like GoTime, King Pharmacy, and Jones Odds and Ends.
“We are incredibly blessed to be able to help our neighbors in these uncertain times. We want to do our part to help flatten the curve and keep everyone healthy.” said Lyndze Smoot, President of Aspire Appalachia.
