UniFirst is pleased to share that we?re close to reaching our goal of donating over 250,000 protective face masks across the U.S. and Canada.

Hygienic laundering kills viruses and contaminants, and can help stop transmission from garments to people.

These special Team Partners have been celebrated since the start of the pandemic for rising up in the face of adversity to help keep frontline workers safe, so they were able to do their critical jobs and keep our communities running. We thank you for upholding the true meaning of the day!
