In response to the global pandemic, COVID-19, NxTSTOP is shifting its manufacturing and supply chain operations to create and offer affordable cloth face masks.
This crisis is disproportionately affecting the most vulnerable groups in society, which is why we’ve decided to support a new charity each month by donating our face masks to them.
April - We partnered with Feeding America to help get our masks on the frontlines of their food banks. We believe everyone should be able to protect themselves from COVID-19, and hope our donations help protect both Feeding America’s dedicated employees and the people they serve.
May and June - we’ve been able to support both World Central Kitchen and The Navajo Nation. We are donating masks to WCK to support their efforts to provide hot meals throughout the Navajo Nation. WCK is feeding children, families, and senior citizens across America. Throughout this pandemic they have been safely distributing thousands of fresh meals to communities in need. Since Native American communities have been hit hard by Covid-19 The NxTSTOP team is committed to supporting both the Navajo Nation, and the impactful work of World Central Kitchen.
July - We partnered with Know Your Rights Camp which was founded by Colin Kaepernick. Their mission is to advance the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities through education, self-empowerment, mass-mobilization and the creation of new systems that elevate the next generation of change leaders.
We were also able to partner with The Okra Project which is a collective that seeks to address the global crisis faced by Black Trans people by bringing home cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources to Black Trans People wherever they can reach them. NxTSTOP pledges to continue to show up and support the fight for radical justice, equality, and change. Black Lives Matter.
August - We partnered with It Takes A Village BR, a nonprofit organization devoted to serving the Greater Baton Rouge community. ITAV works to provide food and clothing while also promoting dignity to their homeless neighbors. Their efforts helped to build a network of resources to lift them off the streets. Lives are transformed and spirits are lifted as they celebrate community and life together each Sunday.
