MaskUp New Mexico

MaskUp New Mexico was recognized for donating thousands of masks to APS.

Stephanie Bartlett and a team of volunteers have been making masks for months.  They’ve shared design patterns in English and Spanish. They even created and donated masks with clear fronts to help deaf students be able to read lips. MaskUp New Mexico raised funds, bought cloth, and made masks…lots of them!  Board Member Candelaria Patterson and New Mexico State Auditor Brian Colon found out about their work, and a partnership with APS became part of the mask making mix.  So far, MaskUp New Mexico has made and donated around 3,000 masks and are currently working on a batch of about 1,000 masks.  Thank you, MaskUp New Mexico, for your outstanding and critical partnership!
