Vistaprint Donates 240,000 Face Masks and Filters to NAFC to Reach Underserved Communities

In Vistaprint’s commitment to supporting community-wide action to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the company has partnered with the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (NAFC) to help underserved communities throughout the United States fight the pandemic.  

The NAFC has received a donation of 240,000 reusable Face Masks and filters from Vistaprint that will be distributed to more than 125 Free and Charitable Clinics in 39 states throughout the country.

According to the CDC, masks are a critical step to help prevent people from getting and spreading COVID-19. While vaccinations continue to be administered and COVID-19 restrictions are starting to ease, it is crucial to continue preventative measures such as wearing a mask when in public settings, using mass transportation, and at events and gatherings.

“Free and Charitable Clinics and Pharmacies are on the frontlines in the U.S. helping their communities respond to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Nicole Lamoureux, NAFC President and CEO.  “We are grateful to Vistaprint for recognizing the needs of marginalized and underserved communities throughout the country and for helping these communities that have been particularly hard-hit by the pandemic to fight further spread of the disease with this donation of masks.”

Annually, the 1,400 Free and Charitable Clinics and Pharmacies located throughout the country provide a wide range of services to about 2 million medically underserved people. The donation of masks and filters from Vistaprint are in both adult and child sizes and will be distributed among the volunteers, patients and community members of the Clinics and Pharmacies that receive these donations.

"As communities across the country begin reopening, we know that organizations like the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics remain an integral part of the process," Vistaprint North America President Emily Whittaker said. "We're proud to partner with the NAFC to provide face masks and filters to thousands of patients as well as team members and volunteers as they support and serve communities in need."
