Ford rolls out 2 million masks for LAUSD’s relief effort

The Ford Motor Company Fund on Monday, Nov. 9, approved a donation of 2 million protective masks to be distributed at schools throughout Los Angeles Unified as part of the district’s coronavirus relief effort.

“We are committed to the highest standard of safety in our schools, including making sure everyone has a mask to help reduce the spread of the virus,” Superintendent Austin Beutner said. “We are grateful Ford has joined with us in this unprecedented effort to provide a safety net to the students and families we serve.”

The single-use masks offer three-ply protection and will be distributed at schools across Los Angeles Unified through LA Students Most in Need, the charity established by Beutner to support Los Angeles Unified’s community relief effort. Click here to read more:
