Serena Williams announced a partnership with Bella + Canvas, the National Board Association, who vowed to donate 4.25 million face masks to over 115,000 schools in need.

Due to face masks becoming a new essential in back-to-school supplies, Serena is aiming to make these unusual circumstances, a much smoother transition. Being that Serena is a mother herself, it is her goal to ensure children’s safety in returning back to school in the fall amid the COVID-19 pandemic.  Serena took to Instagram on Wednesday, July 29th, and publicized this charitable contribution.

In regards to Serena’s Instagram post, she mentioned her donation was made possible through the #MaskForKids program, which offers schools access to budget-friendly educational tools and face masks.  Additionally, Bella + Canvas will donate a mask after each purchase made by the schools.
