Break the Outbreak

Meet The Team

We are a group of high schoolers that have joined this initiative, and started a Break the Outbreak chapter in Wayne, NJ who aim to create face masks and face shields to donate them to local businesses, restaurants, seniors, hospital, care facility, grocery stores, and the general public that do not have much or any. The purpose of our organization is to assist the public in staying safe and healthy in these unprecedented times.

Wajiha Rizvi

Director – Wayne

I wanted to be a part of Break the Outbreak for the basic purpose of helping others and giving back to this wonderful community. After losing a close family member to the coronavirus, I felt the need to make sure others are safe during this outbreak and are able to keep their loved ones safe. I look forward to working with all of you!

Ciara Hurtado

Financial Officer – Wayne

I decided to be a part of Break The Outbreak for a learning experience and to help others that are in need during this pandemic. When I first heard about this, I thought this would be great for me because I haven’t given back to my community. This would be a great starting point, in helping me return the favor, for all the things this community has done for me.

Financial Officer – Wayne

I wanted to be a part of Break the Outbreak to help others. I realized not only citizens, but doctors and nurses are suffering as well.  When I first read an article about how the doctors and nurses are risking their lives every day just to help others I felt useless sitting in my room doing nothing. When I heard about this organization I was eager to help and make a difference whether it’s big or small.

I wanted to join Break The Outbreak to help people during these hard times. This pandemic has been the biggest challenge we have all had to face in our lifetimes and has devastated thousands across the country, and I wanted to do my part to help this cause in any way possible and make a difference even if it’s small.

I wanted to join Break The Outbreak because I want to help people in need and serve our community. There is so much going on in the world today and I think even the smallest impact you can make helps so much.

When I heard about this amazing opportunity from my friend, I was glad to know that there is something I can do to help those in need other than staying home. Like the rest of us, I want this pandemic to be over as quickly as possible, so I am excited to do my part to help speed up the process.

Pari Patel

Communications Officer – Wayne

When I first heard about this organization, I knew that I wanted to join not only to support the frontline workers who have been constantly risking their lives to keep us safe, but also the families that have been impacted by the pandemic. You never know what’s going on in somebody’s life but you can be there to help them get through it and that’s exactly what I plan on doing in Break the Outbreak!

Skyler Weaver

PPE Producer – Wayne

I have always had a part of me that cares and puts others before myself. During these past few months, I have been unable to help others in ways that have always wanted to. So when I heard about this program I was so excited to do my part in helping out the community. I would love to help in any way that I can. This Pandemic has changed all of our lives and I hope that this program helps everyone in need.

Harman Kohli

PPE Producer – Wayne

The reason I decided to join Break The Outbreak came from my inner urgency to help others as much as I can. My Cousin, Uncle, and Mother who work in healthcare have had to deal with this virus. Talking to them, I was able to pick up on just how horrendous and damaging the virus was physically and mentally. After viewing the effects on my family members I became driven to make sure that I need to do what I can to prevent as many people as I can from experiencing these things

Kaitlyn Cooper

PPE Producer – Wayne

I enjoy helping others and making a difference in the lives around me. The effects the virus has on the families around me are heartbreaking. With the aid of others, the pandemic will get better and I want to help. I’m excited to see what Break the Outbreak accomplishes!
