On August 26, the ASEZ (Save the Earth from A to Z) student volunteer group, previously known as the Elohist Club, donated 300 face masks for University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa students, faculty and staff. More than 20 students and church members worked together to hand-sew and package the face masks.
“We want to show our support in preventing COVID-19 in our local community,” said Jasmine Andres ASEZ club president. The student group came up with this idea when they saw other university students from all around the globe making and donating masks to government officials, medical officials and military members.
“We deeply appreciate the ASEZ club members generosity, hard work and aloha that was put into making these masks,” said Aedward Los Banos, associate vice president for administration and interim director of campus services. “It’s heartwarming to see the support from the community for UH Mānoa.”
The face masks will be distributed to students, faculty and staff on the Mānoa campus.
ASEZ is a global group of university student volunteers from the World Mission Society Church of God, who act to solve practical problems around the world.
