Arkansas Arts & Fashion Forum Mask Maker Challenge
Arkansas Arts & Fashion Forum is a Northwest Arkansas-based non-profit whose mission is to provide educational and professional opportunities for Arkansas-based creatives.
Due to the unprecedented circumstances brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, our healthcare workers are facing critical shortages of the personal protective equipment they need to be safe while on the job. Arkansas Arts & Fashion Forum has set up lines of communication at several of our local hospitals and clinics to provide one point of contact for these already overburdened systems. We ask that you do not reach out to hospitals or clinics directly.
We want to get masks to local clinics, first responders, and nursing homes as quickly as possible, so we are trying to get an estimate on how many masks will be donated and by what date so we can begin getting the masks into the hands of those who need it most. Please fill out the information below.
If you have any questions about the masks or know a clinic that needs additional masks, please go to

*note: these masks are not approved for use as anti-viral personal protective equipment, but rather falls into the category of homemade masks that are described by the CDC as suitable for use during severe resource limitations. From the CDC:
“HCP use of homemade masks: In settings where face masks are not available, HCP might use homemade masks (e.g., bandana, scarf) for care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort. However, homemade masks are not considered PPE, since their capability to protect HCP is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option. Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face.”
