Synopsis: Incarcerated individuals in the Hawai‘i Community Correctional Center (HCCC) and Kulani Correctional Facility (KCF) sewing program, under the direction of Hawai‘i Correctional Industries (HCI), made 920 cloth face coverings for those in need in the community. They are producing as many as 4,000 masks a day for sale through HCI and estimate to make well over 300,000 total masks for sale by the end of June. “We would like to extend a huge mahalo to our new partner Aloha Air Cargo.
