Your universities, your businesses and your organizations are workshops of hope for creating new ways of understanding the economy and progress, for combating the culture of waste, for giving voice to those who have none and for proposing new styles of life. - Pope Francis, 2019

The Catholic community is on the forefront of a new movement to use purchasing power to ensure the dignity of workers and demonstrate care for our common home. During the global pandemic, the need to align purchasing with values has never been greater.
As schools, universities and places of worship begin to make plans for safe and gradual re-openings, face coverings play a crucial role. Many organizations have decided to make masks available for anyone entering their facilities and campuses. In response to this need, Collection partnered with the Carolina Textile District, a diverse network of North Carolina manufacturers emphasizing worker dignity and environmental sustainability, to offer high quality cloth masks to Catholic high school, universities and parishes.
Place your order by November 15th to join in this unique discounted opportunity.
Here are some of the best reasons to participate.
- Invest in High Quality Products: These breathable, lightweight masks are made with BioSmartTM antimicrobial technology to keep you safe.
- Support Local Manufacturing: Your order supports small mills (like furniture manufacturers) keeping their doors open and communities working.
- Care for the Environment: Masks are washable/reusable, providing effective protection up to 75 washes.
- Harness the Buying Power of the Catholic Community: Because all orders are being aggregated and placed together on November 15th, pricing is significantly lower than any single organization would be able to get for these high quality, ethically-produced masks. You will still be able to have your own unique design printed on the masks!
