At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in Spring and Summer of 2020, the Mayor’s Fund supported the distribution of reusable face masks within immigrant communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, launched a pilot with the LAPD Community Safety Partnership Bureau to distribute face masks to adults and children across the city, collaborated with local companies to 3D-print face shields for hospitals, and partnered with small businesses and nonprofits to produce and and distribute protective equipment for unhoused and low-income Angelenos.
