The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending that everyone should wear a cloth face mask when out in public, as masks may help reduce the chance of spreading COVID-19. They are also telling us that surgical and N95 masks should be prioritized for healthcare workers to protect themselves. We want to help customers who want to make their own masks, so we are launching our Mask Fabric For Free* campaign.

Visit any Ocean State Job Lot store to pick up your free fabric.
Most of the fabric is a high-quality cotton/polyester blend.
We have two sizes available:
If you are making one mask, please take a cloth napkin.
If you are making multiple masks, please take a tablecloth.
You will find a display set up in each of our stores where you will find the fabric.
We are limiting customers to five units of fabric to give as many people as possible the opportunity to participate. (If you are picking up fabric for an organization that is making masks to donate to those in need, please speak with a store associate and we will try to accommodate a larger order.)
We have enough fabric for one million masks! Some stores are giving away fabric very quickly, so we’re working to replenish stores as they run low.
*Please go through the checkout line as you would to make a purchase. The fabric will ring through our point of sale for one cent. This allows us to track the amount of fabric we are giving away. You will not be charged for the fabric.
