Break the Outbreak
San Jose

Meet The Team

We are a group of students from Lynbrook High School that has joined an initiative. We started a break the outbreak chapter in San Jose which aims to create face masks and face shields for donation towards local businesses, restaurants, seniors, hospitals, care facilities, and grocery stores. The purpose of our project is to assist the public in staying safe and healthy during these unprecedented times.

Arnav Dixit

Director – San Jose

I chose to start a BTO branch in San Jose as it appealed to me that local businesses in my community were experiencing difficulties to assist customers when reopening during this pandemic. I have an innate passion for assisting the community and always seek to step up as a leader to help out. The situation we’ve come across with COVID 19 exclusively invites the collaboration of the youth to step up, lead, and serve the community.

After seeing how hard local businesses can be hit, especially due to Covid-19, I feel that it’s my responsibility to help give back to the community that has been giving to me my whole life. Joining BTO gives me the opportunity to help local businesses through this pandemic.

I chose to join Break the Outbreak for a couple of reasons. I enjoy volunteering and partaking in community service because I want to do my part to give back to the community. I also want to help out in the battle against coronavirus.
