L+M funded the 100 Tailors of Harlem to sew masks for our Brooklyn and Bronx residents during the New York City COVID shutdown. This program gave residents access to free and reusable masks and ensured that small businesses from the 100 Tailors were able to remain operational. The 100 Tailors is a small business incubator initiative based out of the Malcolm Shabazz Harlem Markets.
As part of this collective effort, the 100 Tailors of Harlem created more than 4,400 masks for residents. Thank you to our partner, GDSNY, for funding masks for our Bronx residents.
We are thrilled to partner with the 100 Tailors of Harlem and grateful that they were able to produce so many masks for our residents during the height of the pandemic. We look forward to working with 100 Tailors on projects in the future.
