distributed to those in need near Richmond.

The Guardsmen pulled out of HanesBrands’ distribution center near
Winston-Salem carrying more than 1,280 pounds of face masks on their six-hour
journey of care to Henrico County.

Hundreds of volunteers are assisting the county and the Virginia National
Guard to assemble care packages containing washable and reusable 3-ply
all-cotton Hanes face masks to assist in the community’s efforts to quell the
spread of COVID-19. The care packages are being distributed throughout the
Memorial Day weekend.

“We are proud to be the supplier of face masks needed by Henrico County and
transported by the Guard for the care-package program,” said Ray Randazzo,
business development director at HanesBrands. “Just two months ago in the
midst of COVID-19 pandemic, our company pivoted our production capabilities to
start making face masks for the first time. We are now quickly helping
businesses and organizations meet their needs to reopen safely by supplying
millions of masks.”

Legacy Medical Sales and JuMP Medical Supply Co., procurement partners for the
Virginia National Guard, worked with HanesBrands to expedite the face mask
shipment in a matter of days to assure availability for the Henrico Country
event.

The Virginia National Guard is a major contributor to the state’s response to
the COVID-19 pandemic. The Guard has collected nearly 12,600 samples for
COVID-19 testing, performed nearly 1,700 mask fit tests, distributed nearly
60,700 pounds of food and has driven more than 49,000 miles delivering
supplies and testing kits to multiple locations across the state.

HanesBrands expects to launch sales of Hanes face masks to consumers online
and in leading retail stores within the next several weeks. In addition, the
company is supplying the U.S. government with more than 320 million reusable
cloth face coverings and more than 20 million reusable long-sleeve medical
gowns.
