J.Crew and Madewell have partnered to donate 75,000 single-use medical-grade face masks to Montefiore Health System hospitals in New York, announcing the news on Instagram on April 27, 2020. This comes after Christian Siriano discussed his own impressive donation of 10,000 colorful face masks to those on the frontlines fighting the coronavirus crisis. While many other companies and organizations have pledged to donate money to the cause, J.Crew and Madewell’s whopping donation of medical-grade masks is especially notable.
The brands also join a long list of fashion labels shifting gears and listing non-medical cotton face masks on their websites, so shoppers can either add one to their cart, if they happen to be shopping, or receive one for free with any purchase made. Both J.Crew and Madewell have already sold out of their masks, which cost $18 and $20 respectively, but you can check back for restocking information soon.
J.Crew’s three-pack of masks comes in the company’s signature stripes and gingham, while Madewell’s come in a chambray fabric and remind us of our feel-good, go-to denim. Even though some of the most popular sites continue to sell out of their non-medical masks, they’re working to reproduce batches as quickly as possible, and most are updated with approximate shipping date information. Read J.Crew and Madewell’s pledges ahead.
