First, our thoughts and prayers are with the many people, local and around the world, who have lost someone they know and love due to COVID-19. We send our sincere condolences and prayers for peace and comfort to you.
For the past few weeks, we have shifted our focus on what we can do to help using our talents and resources that we already have in place. After seeing a critical need for masks and the ever dwindling supply of elastic and tapes, we designed a tape that could serve as ties for face masks and hospital gowns, etc. It’s designed with an American Flag color scheme/theme but it also has other meanings. The two red lines represent the healthcare and frontline workers working non-stop, administering critical care needs to their patients and the ones on the frontline delivering essentials to us all. The blue skipping line represents the heartbeats they all are saving. We are 100% donating this tape, which we have named “American Heroes Tape”, to all the many heroes who are working tirelessly making masks and donating to those in need. Our hope is that if you see this tape on a mask somewhere, you will know it is MADE IN THE USA, by an American manufacturer, and made with a purpose.
Even though we are donating this tape, we have had an enormous request for it to be available for purchase online because our friends and followers want to make a difference too. We will have this on our website soon for purchase and any and all proceeds will be used in continuing our efforts in donating to large workrooms and groups coordinating with hospitals and others in need.
Lastly, Fringe Market is still open and operating. Mark and I are the only ones running the Mill currently which keeps our employees home and safe and allows us to keep a controlled and healthy work environment. If there’s anything we can do for you, please let us know. Until then…stay safe and well.
