The Labor of Love Mask Project
has been our way of helping our community and giving back to seniors in our area. I made my first mask on March 17, 2020 and to date have made over 1,500 with the help of my daughters Aubrey and Carly donating more than half of those. Levi, our infamous Golden Retriever was there from the start, lending a paw and helping us to safely deliver masks while practicing social distancing.
Sadly, Levi passed on December 20, 2021 at the age of 10 leaving us with wonderful memories and a love deep with our hearts that will remain forever. As a tribute to this beautiful boy, we decided to memorialize Levi with putting his name on the project he loved participating in. We have continued to make and distribute masks to this day. In Levi's memory, we are providing masks to senior facilities and invite you to be a part of that endeavor. If you know a senior that needs a mask, please let us know with their name, phone# and address so we can mail them one. If you would like to contribute to the mask fund that supplies the masks to seniors, simply stop in or send your contribution to us through PayPal, in store or by phone. We will use it to provide more masks to our seniors.
Our design as evolved over the past year and now features an aluminum nose band for better fit, adjustable straps, three layers of cotton and an inner pocket for the carbon filters we include with each mask. We even offer a beard mask that allows guys to continue to wear a beard and stay safe.
We have partnered with the Arvada Fire Department as well as senior living facilities in our area to help get the masks in the hands of the seniors in our community.
Those of us that knew Levi have great memories of him and his playfulness and zest for life. We've shared just a few of his candid shots for your enjoyment.
