Toledoans are resilient. We aren’t strangers to struggle, and we face challenges head-on. With face masks in low supply, local artists, moms, designers and seamstresses stepped up and began sewing, donating, and selling face masks for those in need. 

Buying local is more important now than ever, so if you’re looking for face masks as Ohio begins to reopen, consider these local sellers, many of whom have been working tirelessly to donate face masks to healthcare workers.
