Skechers, which designs, develops and markets a diverse range of footwear, apparel and accessories, is donating one million masks to essential workers and communities in need. The company is partnering with the United Way of Greater Los Angeles and more charities across the US to deliver the masks directly to those who will most benefit.

The one million masks, which are non-medical, triple-layer surgical style, will be donated to non-profit organisations that typically do not receive PPE from government institutions, with a focus on economic hardship. This includes community and public education centres, health and rehab outreach facilities, plus homeless shelters and food banks in the greater Los Angeles area as well as planned distributions in Chicago, New York City, Detroit and several cities in Florida and New Jersey.

The United Way of Greater Los Angeles will be distributing Skechers masks to shelters, clinics, community centres and food banks throughout the metropolitan region from San Gabriel to Long Beach over the next month. The remaining masks will be distributed to facilities in key vulnerable communities identified and supported by charity partners across the country, the Manhattan Beach, California-based company said.
