Mask Mission AK is a group of West Anchorage High School students who are organizing Alaskans in the making of homemade masks which they donate to areas of our community in need during the coronavirus pandemic. So far, they have provided over 1,400 masks to various sites such as ANMC, Alaska Regional Hospital, Bean’s Cafe, Anchorage Health Dept, USO JBER, Anchorage Fire Department, and more!

ATMI senior producer Quinn White spoke with Sharon Kim, the group’s founder, and Caitlyn Omey, their vice president and head of public relations, to talk about the work that they are doing in our community.

The interview was recorded remotely on July 21st, 2020.
