• support all types of fish

We need your surgical masks. We need your N95 masks. Your hospital is likely rationing them today. If you have some to donate (or even sell) locally in Southeast Michigan please reach out, I'm begging you. I can help get them where they're needed.

If you have masks and you're not local, find the nearest hospital and take them to the administration area.
