About us

our mission and support from the community


The Masked Heroes Initiative (MHI) is a nonprofit charity based in Orange County, California. Many of us graduated from Valencia High School (Placentia, California) and are current college students from several universities across California, such as USC, UCLA, UC Berkeley, CSUF, Cal Poly Pomona, and more. We collect donations that are used to order masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) to send to hospitals and healthcare centers. As more COVID-19 cases occur each day, these medical centers see increased shortages of the supplies they need to treat patients as well as protect themselves.

MHI was founded on the principles to serve and protect the community during this pandemic. Donating masks to hospitals, we have helped make sure the protectors of our modern society stay safe during the pandemic. So far, we have donated over 24,100 masks to various causes listed below. The ultimate goal of our organization is to uphold the powerful messages and beliefs of our community while ensuring their safety as best as we can during the pandemic.

"While others were protesting, Placentia resident Jay Kim-Turner walked around handing people masks.

He just finished his first year at UC Berkeley but was home early because of COVID-19. In April, he and seven of his friends, many of them from Valencia High School, started a GoFundMe called Masked Heroes Initiative, where they’ve raised $1,355 so far in order to buy masks to donate to local hospitals."
