Laredo Mask Makers Project

Great job for a great cause! Laredo Economic Development Corporation, through the Laredo Mask Makers Initiative, have donated over 600 masks to our community to include the Casa de Misericordia, Drs. Gary and Jane Unzeitig, Dr. Luis Benavides, Retama Manor, AEP Texas, Dr. Reynaldo Godines, Dr. Gomez Vasquez, Apollo Rehabilitation Center, as well as other entities throughout the Laredo region.

Special thanks to recently retired President/CEO Olivia Varela, Mrs. Meva Saenz, Council Person Nelly Vielma, Rosie Reynoso, and Lupita B. Eads as well as Chief Administrative Officer Yvette Medina, for going above and beyond in the “we got you covered” mask coordination and distribution. In addition, we are grateful for our mask makers volunteers for their cutting and sewing expertise and for making our community safe and sound during these unprecedented times.
