Angela Edgeworth, a local resident who owns Pediped, a children’s shoe manufacturer with a plant in China, today donated 1,000 masks to the Cashman Isolation-Quarantine Complex (ISO-Q), a joint project of the city of Las Vegas and Clark County.

Edgeworth selected the facility to receive the masks to help support frontline personel and volunteers helping to safely house and treat the valley’s homeless population who have contracted the coronavirus.

The donation, secured through the Mayor’s Fund for Las Vegas LIFE, is the result of the organization’s efforts to coordinate and secure donations of cash and essential items needed to combat the coronavirus in our community.
