Lincoln, NH, heart of the White Mountains:   To combat the shortage of surgical and other masks, Burgeon is participating in the #millionmaskchallenge.  Effective yesterday, Burgeon converted 100% of its production to create reusable cotton face masks to be donated wherever the need is greatest.

A number of organizations including hospitals and homeless shelters have put out the call for homemade face masks. While these masks are not ideal, we are in a crisis and this is a way we can help. The Center for Disease Control states "In settings where facemasks are not available, HCP might use homemade masks (eg, bandana, scarf) for care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort". We are aware that the government is working hard to get proper medical masks in the hands of medical professionals but there is a real need at this moment in time.

Please stay safe out there.  We wish you all the best of health during this crisis.  We’ll see you on the other side.

I’m a teacher in Londonderry N.H. and was told by a fellow teacher that you were giving away face mask. Is that still the case I can’t find anything about it on your website.
Thanks and stay well!
