Hanes and Invisible People have partnered up to make sure 1 million homeless people receive masks nationwide. They are working with homeless service providers across the country to deliver masks with a focus on areas hit the hardest like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Houston, New York and Puerto Rico.
