Northeast Maglev has Maryland Covered with 20,000 Reusable Face Masks

2020 has been unprecedented, to say the least. These times have been trying for all members of our communities, but for some the pandemic and related economic impacts have hit harder than others.

In the face of COVID-19, the team at Northeast Maglev found it important to come together to make a difference in our communities. We are proud to be continuing our mission of providing local communities across Maryland with the supplies needed to protect themselves during this time.

We are proud to have had the opportunity to work alongside community leaders and local organizations to donate over 20,000 reusable face masks to communities in need. We are looking forward to continuing to partner with community leaders to provide communities throughout the region with support during this time.
