We will continue to keep you updated as we receive confirmed information.

If you are in need of a mask, you can bring an old sweatshirt or tee shirt cut into 12 inches x 16 inches pieces, put it in an envelope or a baggie with your name and telephone number on the bag, bring it to Special Tees located at 300 Springfield Ave Berkeley Heights, and put in the top mailbox outside store (pull down on the silver handle to gain access to the mailbox). Special Tees will laser cut the fabric into a mask that fits around your ears and covers your mouth and nose.  They will call or text you as soon as it is finished (usually within a few hours). Please use only cotton tee shirt or a 50/50 blend sweatshirt with a little stretch to the fabric so that it will fit a little more comfortably on your face. You may smell a slight burned scent when you first open the baggie because your mask will literally be “hot off the presses”.  What a great way to utilize some all of your old, favorite, unworn sports jerseys too. This is a FREE service donated by Mike Allocco of Special Tees. We thank him for this very generous and helpful service to our community. For more information, please contact Mike Allocco at mikealloccoteeshirts@gmail.com.
