Since their debut last week, our stylish face masks (made with care by an enterprising mother/daughter duo in Lewis Center) have been flying off the digital shelves in our online store. Since 100% of the sales of these masks benefits Service!, a relief effort working to eliminate hunger among restaurant industry workers and families, your purchases have made a real difference while doing your part to maintain personal and public health. [EDIT: As of April 28, we’re all sold out of masks. So far, 614NOW readers have raised $2,080 for Service!]
As we prepare for the reopening of some public spaces next month, face masks are sure to remain a common sight. It comes as no surprise that some of Columbus’ top brands have joined the mask game, providing their own lines of stylish and functional PPE for this strange new age we’re all living in.
Homage, the city’s homegrown fashion leader, has repurposed the famously soft materials used to produce its t-shirts into a nifty 3-layer mask, available for purchase on its online store.
Retailing at $9.00/per individual mask, 3 masks for for $24, or 5 for $35, one dollar from every Homage mask purchased will go to 100kmasksforohio.org.

Not to be outdone, Seventh Son Brewing has partnered with Positive Negative Press on their own line of functional branded masks. These masks, available in three attractive styles, are provided as a free gift to anyone who places a delivery order with Seventh Son this week (while supplies last).
