Break the Outbreak
Fairfax County

Meet The Team

We are a group of high-schoolers from all over Fairfax County who aim to create face masks and face shields to donate them to local businesses, restaurants, and grocery stores that do not have any. The purpose of our project “Break the Outbreak – Fairfax” is to assist the public in staying safe and healthy in these unprecedented times.

I am privileged enough to have resources to protect myself against COVID-19, and I want to help those who aren’t as lucky. By joining Break the Outbreak, I can protect my community and lessen the harmful impact of the pandemic by donating adequate PPE. If these resources reach the individuals who are constantly exposed to and/or at high risk of dying from COVID-19, it may ultimately save their lives.
