One woman from the Hudson Valley has made hundreds of masks for local essential workers.

Cuomo asked that apparel companies do what they can to shift their business towards making medical masks to help protect residents from COVID-19. Many Hudson valley companies have answered the call and one fashion graduate from the area has made over 400 masks for workers on the front line.

Lauren Conde was raised in Wappingers Falls but moved down to Georgia to get her Bachelors degree in fashion design.
