Many of those who are deaf or hard of hearing rely on lip reading to aid their understanding when others speak. These masks are specifically designed to help maintain clear communications, while keeping the community safe.
LITE is appealing to Winnipeggers to deliver 500 masks to community organizations providing front-line services to people who are under-housed and/or homeless.
These cloth masks are made by the Winnipeg social enterprise, The Cutting Edge.
LITE volunteers will deliver masks to community organizations. Organizations interested in receiving masks should send their request to: email@example.com
