Pay It Forward - Give A Mask



Mandatory masks are being implemented as of July 7, 2020 at 12:01 a.m. as required by the Medical Officer of Health under the authority of the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA) Ontario Regulation 263/20.

COVID-19 has been an enormous burden for many and we recognize that the cost of a mask for a single person — or for an entire family can be financially challenging, especially during this time.

That's why we've created our Pay It Forward - Give A Mask Program to provide the opportunity to pay it forward and purchase a mask for someone in need. Neighbors helping neighbors.

Masks provided through this program thanks to our generous clients will require pickup at our store located at 31 York Street in the Byward Market between Friday and Sunday weekly.

Individuals in need can apply to receive a free cotton/bamboo mask by sending us an email at with 'Pay It Forward - Give A Mask Program' in the subject line.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Your purchase of this item will enable us to provide masks to those who cannot afford them. Thank you for your generous support!
