LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – In light of COVID-19, one local company is helping to keep our veterans and those helping them on the front lines safe by making and donating face masks.

Curtis Chase is the Director of Operations at IFB Solutions in Little Rock.

The company is one of the largest employers of people who are blind or visually impaired.

He says the company has begun manufacturing masks for the U-S Air Force and for local Veteran’s Hospitals in the cities in which they operate.

Curtis adds the employee at the Little Rock Facility feels they are helping to serve our country by doing this.

“They made a decision to donate the masks to the VA hospitals. We donated 250 of the cloth masks, which actually go to the VA patients, and then we donated 250 of the N-95 masks for all the health care providers,” said Curtis.
