Here at Rapt Clothing, we might be a small team, but we have big goals. We’ve seen how large corporations have been able to use their resources to help prevent, detect, and manage Covid-19 on the frontlines - and we’re impressed. As our big brothers and sisters are dealing with, well, the big stuff, we’re putting our resources to do our part in helping those who are often overshadowed
by the “bigger picture”.
You can find “little pictures” of local community members who are rockin' our masks down below!
Being based out of Downtown Los Angeles means that we have a worm’s eye view of the over 8,000 homeless people living here. When Mayor Garcetti urged LA residents to cover up, we knew we had to be the ones to help out our community on the individual level.
We went to the streets with a mission to pass out masks to our local residents. Surprisingly, we were approached by all walks of life who expressed their difficulty finding masks amidst the shortages. We were thrilled to help out! Even a few new friends & police officers wanted some masks so they could “look as cool as them.”
A customer reached out to let us know she loved our masks and the way they looked with her outfits outside of work. We got to talking and found out she works at the Los Robles Respiratory Therapy Center, dealing directly with Covid-19 patients. We saw this as another opportunity to do our part on the community level. We hit up our favorite locally owned lunch spot, Chicken King Express, and with their partnership, we delivered lunch and masks to the entire respiratory therapy department.
We’ve helped out parts of our community, and now we want to help yours! We need you to guide us to the people in your neighborhoods that need help and highlight the people in your neighbors who are essential workers, health care providers, or a hero in their own way.
