*MASKS FOR MANUFACTURERS*

To help support our manufacturers, we are pleased to announce that, in partnership with HTDC-Innovate Hawaii, HFMA and the Chamber Manufacturing Initiative, we are offering masks to manufacturers at no cost.  The masks were made by seamstresses locally to support local manufacturers, and intended for you and your employees only, not for resale or family and friends.  Thank you for honoring this request.  Please email info@innovatehawaii.org to place your order (limited to 10 masks) and for pick up dates and times.  You and your company are important to us and we want to support our manufacturers through this time of change.
