Support APIDC & Buy a Face Mask
The CDC has announced that double masking is highly recommended and can filter out 92% of particles. You can stay safe and support APIDC by buying our custom-designed masks, that come in Adult Teal/Peacock, which also come with a handy black lanyard. The colorful and stylish masks make wonderful gifts for friends and family.
We would deeply appreciate your support! Proceeds from our masks sales benefit our ARCH (Anxiety Resources for Campus Health) program. ARCH will be offering on-line mental health programming for students with disabilities at area colleges this spring semester. Programming will include Stress Management, Mindfulness, Burnout, and Self-Care. Participating campuses include Pasadena City College, Rio Hondo College, Citrus College and East Los Angeles College. Renee Te has joined our growing staff in response to the high level of interest expressed by our college partners. For more information, contact Mark Matsui at email@example.com.
