Two 2017 graduates of the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts, Varun Amin and Kabir Shah have created the “Got Mask?” community project to ensure that every Louisianan has access to free CDC recommended face masks.
The two, who are currently university students, began the initiative after noticing the widespread need for proper protection against the novel coronavirus. Amin, from Lake Charles, and Shah, a native of Natchitoches, are currently based in Lake Charles but ship masks throughout the state to those in need.
Due to the high demand for masks and the number or orders received, Amin and Shah are especially looking for volunteers who can help sew face masks. All mask-making materials will be provided, if needed, for volunteers.
The two met as students at LSMSA.
