Clearbrook creates tie-dye face masks to raise funds for N95 masks
COVID-19 has threatened more than just those infected. It has touched the lives of every person around the globe. Sadly at Clearbrook, they have lost both individuals and staff, with many more hospitalized.
Since the pandemic began, Clearbrook has spent 1.3 million on keeping our individuals and staff healthy and prepared. Because of this astonishing and unbudgeted amount of money, the challenge is even greater for Clearbrook to raise desperately needed funds.
Purchase a mask tie-dyed by one of Clearbrook's talented individuals.
A portion of the proceeds will go toward purchasing N95 masks for staff who work directly with Clearbrook clients.
The cost for masks is $20, two for $37, or four for $75.
There is a $4 shipping fee to help Clearbrook cover the shipping cost.
These are adult size reusable masks. The mask shell is 93% polyester and 7% spandex, and the mask lining is 95% cotton and 5% spandex.

You can also make a difference in the lives of thousands with intellectual and developmental disabilities this #GivingTuesday Dec. 1. Every donation, no matter how large or small, has a big impact on the adults and children served by Clearbrook. Their goal this year is to raise $50,000 to empower the adults and children we serve to live their fullest lives.
Your gift, of any amount, will be doubled thanks to a generous match offered by Clearbrook's board of directors. Gifts of $1,000+ will be matched twice, thanks to the generosity of the board and the Coleman Foundation.
