In anticipation of mask requirements across the country, we
want to prepare our nation’s schools for the upcoming academic
year. So for every mask sold, we’ll donate one to a school in need.
Our goal is to help every student and teacher in the U.S.
go back to school safely in the fall.

How You Can Help

Make masks yourself, or simply buy masks for you and your loved ones and we’ll donate on your behalf.
Make to Give
Countless volunteers mobilized to help us meet our original goal of making 100 million masks to help stop the spread of COVID-19. But our Make to Give efforts supporting front-line caregivers, service workers, and others in our communities doesn't have to stop there.

QUESTIONS?

What schools will donated masks go to?
JOANN will work with the Kids In Need Foundation to help allocate most efficiently to schools in need and to serve those most under-resourced with the protective equipment they may not be able to obtain otherwise. Our hope is that as many schools as possible can receive a donation, however we cannot guarantee which schools or how many will receive masks at this time.
What kind of masks will go to schools?
JOANN is committed to providing quality masks to schools in need as they prepare for what school looks like this fall. We will provide masks that are either 100% cotton or surgical grade to ensure masks are most effective.
What will schools do with these masks?
JOANN will leave it up to schools to determine how they will use donated masks. Some schools may provide to students that forget a PPE mask, other schools may decide to issue at the beginning of the school year for ongoing use. We trust local school administrators to make the wisest use of donations.
Will some masks go to teachers?
JOANN will provide a varied selection of children and adult masks such that some may be used for staff and faculty, however JOANN will also leave these decisions up to administrators.
Can I donate to JOANN for schools?
We will not be accepting outside donations or coordinating community made masks at this time. However, we encourage you to reach out to your local school system to see if there is a need that you can fill and to donate directly.
When will donations be made?
JOANN will work throughout the summer to count as many purchased masks and match that quantity for donations to schools. There may also be ongoing donations throughout the school year depending on supplies and availability.
How can I contribute?
For every mask that you purchase, JOANN will donate one to a school. By purchasing masks at joann.com or in-store, your purchase will be counted towards records that will be used for donations.
What if I need masks in bulk?

Reach out to joannplus@joann.com and a team member will help you with a larger order. These large orders will also be matched on a buy one donate one basis.
