The 100 Million Mask Challenge

In March of 2020, Providence Health and Services, started the 100 Million Mask Challenge. The hope was to reach out to their local community to help create much needed PPE. Within a few days, Providence and Kaas Tailored formed a partnership to rapidly produce face shields and face masks for their caregivers.

Partnership with Nordstrom

Kaas Tailored and Nordstrom have had a partnership for over 40 years. From making sofas in their shoe departments to giving their IT teams tours of the factory, we have always loved working with a dependable, customer-centric company. Within the first week of partnering with Providence Health and Services, Kaas Tailored pulled Nordstrom into the mix. Many Nordstrom store locations around the US are now manufacturing masks. Their alterations teams are working hard to fight the PPE shortage in our healthcare system. Follow the link below to view the initial Nordstrom announcement post.
