Support workers and donate to those in need. In addition to producing these masks for Aviator, our factory has also coordinated with the city of Los Angeles to manufacture and donate masks to local hospitals. These masks are different from the Aviator masks and are specially designed for hospital workers and administrators. They are not available for sale or additional donation, because the city has already allocated our factory’s supply. But your Aviator purchase will still help support this cause and keep our factory working. Together, we can stay safe and healthy!
