“Getting back to school this fall means having #masksforkids to wear,” Serena wrote on Instagram. “I’m teaming up with @bellacanvas, the National School Board Association and @scholasticinc to donate 4.25 million masks to underserved schools and provide educational materials about masks to 54 million students and all 115,00 schools in the United States.”

Along with the masks, the program will also be providing educational materials to the schools.

“Through the #MasksForKids program, schools can access affordable masks and educational materials, quickly,” Serena continued. “In addition to donating 4.25 million masks, another mask will be donated for each one purchased by the schools. I’m grateful to be able to help educate our schools about this resource, and to be given the opportunity to serve so many students.”
