LifeToGo and Mark Wahlberg To Donate 1.3 Million Face Masks to Schools

Wearing a face mask is one of the best ways to protect our community from the Covid-19 pandemic. This is especially critical for the health and well-being of the teachers, staff and students who recently returned to the classroom.

In an effort to help keep students and teachers healthy and focused on learning, Mark Wahlberg’s Performance Inspired brand has teamed up with Accelerate360’s active lifestyle brand, LifeToGo, to donate 1.3 million disposable face masks to schools across the United States.
