“Necessity is the mother of invention” – Plato
These are trying times. With supply shortages, stay at home orders, and the constant threat of the invisible enemy, people are getting creative on how to help on an individual level. Rather than purchasing masks away from medical professionals who need them, many are opting to make their own face covering.
Haynes organized a mask contest in addition to providing PPE to our front line workers. By making a fun game out of wearing a mask, we were hoping to increase participation. Little did we know that we were on to something! The state of Colorado has recently announced a mask activity in which school age children decorate and submit a mask design (to promote young kids wearing masks).

The entries are in and our associates did not disappoint. See the functional, colorful, and sometimes humorous masks below.
