A group of volunteers called the “Mask Posse” is working hard to create and deliver masks across the valley. The group is affiliated with the local chapter of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Union. The Mask Posse told 8 News Now many of their members have skillls making costumes. So, this seemed like the perfect way to pitch in.
So far, in just under three weeks, they’ve donated more than 2,000 masks to hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare centers across the Las Vegas valley. The group of abut 100 volunteers, which is made up of union and even non-union members, do everything from washing the material to sewing the masks and delivering them to their destinations.
