Loretta Kryshak of Rebel Reform Thanks Srisupraja Kandrakota who Costructed 10,000 Face Masks
Milwaukee, WI October 19, 2020
In September, we shared the story about Srisupraja Kandrakota from Kenosha who was on a crusade to construct 10,000 face masks with materials donated by Rebel Converting The masks were being made for Kenosha health workers, fellow students, teachers, and families to help prevent the Coronavirus spread.
Using Donated Materials and Their Time Wisely
Many teens use their spare time to play video games, watch YouTube, or talk to their friends. However, Srisupraja Kandrakota decided to use her time and talent to reach an impressive goal instead. She recently completed making 10,000 facemasks for her local community!
It took Srisupraja all summer long and into the fall to finish this gargantuan task – while also getting her homework done and doing other fun things normal teenagers do.
Thanks to Loretta Kryshak with Rebel Reform and co-founder of MaskUPMKE.org, Srisupraja created masks from donated materials. Srisupraja spent hours upon hours folding fabric and adding ear loops that keep the masks in place.
“Srisupraja is a wonderful example of what can be done when we all pitch in to help each other,” commented Loretta Kryshak. “She should be very proud of herself.” She added, “We are very grateful.”
MaskUpMKE and Ongoing Efforts
MaskUpMKE.org, Rebel Converting, and Rebel Reform are working together to promote awareness around the city and across the state regarding face coverings and masks. Face masks continue to be the most effective way to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
The masks are distributed in various ways to anyone in need of a mask, for free. COVID-19 is not going away, and the simple act of wearing a face covering can save lives, prevent the spread, and reduce the length and severity of this pandemic. Getting masks out to those who need them is a huge help.
