Entrepreneur Tzvi Odzer Creating Non-Profit to Distribute Masks

In the current COVID-19 pandemic, the question of whether or to wear a face mask is a highly debatable topic, despite a number of states having mandates for masks in place. A lot of people believe that even if they’re not a high-risk group for the disease there is no need to wear the mask. But, according to medical professionals, wearing a mask will help others avoid the deadly virus. This is precisely the reason that the successful businessman Tzvi Odzer has launched an initiative to offer masks to those who require masks.

Tzvi Odzer was born within Brooklyn, NY, started his first business at the aged of 18 working in the basement in his family’s house selling paper products visiting door-to-door. The foundation he built was a success and, after more than three decades, he now has numerous distribution companies. They have recently joined forces together with the Vegas Golden Knights NHL team and will also have the right to name rights for the new arena situated in Henderson, Nevada.

“I am a big hockey fan, so I decided to merge two of my passions,” Tzvi Odzer stated in an interview with Medium interview.

Odzer who has developed numerous scholarship programs for young entrepreneurs is making use of his money and influence to establish a non-profit organization to offer masks to people who are in need of them during the present COVID-19 epidemic.

The CDC (Center for Disease Control) has suggested that people wear masks in public areas in the event that they cannot maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from other people. For instance when an excursion to the supermarket shop is required wearing a mask can ensure that others are protected if someone is infected by the virus, as it is transmitted through droplets of the air.

Studies have proven that COVID-19 is transferred from person to person prior to symptoms show up through sneezing coughing, or shouting.
