Williamsport, Pa. – Earlier this year, the Lycoming County United Way (LCUW) was a recipient of 500 masks from the United Way of North Central Mass (UWNCM), and on December 3, LCUW received a second shipment of 1,500 masks.
UWNCM was approached earlier in the year by a corporate partner, which asked for help with a philanthropic initiative that would help with the COVID-19 crisis. The company, AIS, an office furniture manufacturer located in Leominster, Massachusetts, has been working with United Way programs for several years. Its latest initiative is called “Sew the Masks,” a project with the goal of making and donating one million reusable face masks to people in need.
