Bay Cities to Assemble and Packout Face Masks for Rags of Honor
Monday, June 22, 2020
Posted by: Alyce Ryan
Bay Cities, North America’s most innovative packaging and design company, today announces that over 1.5 million face masks will be kitted and packed out for Rags of Honor. Over 1 million of the Masks of Honor are available now in over 1,800 Walmart stores.
The Masks of Honor (https://masksofhonor.us/) are an initiative by Rags of Honor (https://ragsofhonor.us/), an apparel company devoted to hiring homeless and at-risk veterans, run by Mark Doyle and his wife Kip.
“Every day, 22 veterans take their lives. Proceeds from the mask sales could save the lives of 100 veterans” said Mark Doyle.
When Rags of Honor and Walmart discussed this initiative, Walmart contributed with direct to store delivery. They partnered with Bay Cities to design, manufacture, and assemble the packaging for the masks and displays and perform the packout. The masks are made in America by Art of Sportswear (AST) and put 300 Americans to work.
“There are companies who talk about veterans, and then there are companies who put their money behind it and step in. Bay Cities underwrote several million dollars for this program, just because they thought it was the right thing to do.” continued Mark Doyle.
“Masks of Honor is an initiative, which we were happy to support. This mask could potentially save several lives: your own, the people around you, and a veteran. It supports and provides funds for American veterans and is also providing necessary work for hundreds of American workers along the supply chain. Shoppers are getting an essential PPE they can feel great about.” said Sahar Mehrabzadeh, Executive Vice President, Sales of Bay Cities.
