Shield Athens is a grassroots, volunteer project to make face shields  for medical and other personnel in need of protection from Covid -19. They are making and distributing shields quickly, and NOW, while waiting for nationwide availability to improve. They are providing our services for free in order to protect members of the Athens, Georgia community.

They are responding to a worldwide shortage of personal protective gear for medical workers who are on the front lines of the corona virus epidemic. It will take months for supply to catch up with demand. They are doing their part to help Athens medical workers in the interim.

If you want to help make masks, please contact Chris Sugiuchi at
