Hasbro makes thousands of face shields
« on: May 02, 2020, 03:52:24 PM »
I was googling around to see how Hasbro was doing, what with the coronavirus, and I discovered they geared up to make thousands of face shields for medical workers in their factories.  Great news, because PPE is still not readily available in the US.

Yes that is great news.  Apparently Mattel's North American factories are also doing the same.

Fantastic. It's been really heartening to see that quite a few large companies have similarly repurposed their factories to manufacture PPE. Good on Hasbro.
