Vancouver-based women’s wear company Smash + Tess has designed scrub caps for healthcare workers who are in much need of equipment during their fight against the coronavirus outbreak.

Inspired by local healthcare heroes — and named after BC Respiratory Therapist Jessica Lu — Smash + Tess have spurred up a drive to build scrub caps for donation during this time.

“The LuLove Cap (a non-surgical scrub cap in our cozy Romper fabric) will be made and donated to frontline healthcare workers fighting COVID-19,” reads the company’s Instagram post.

This cap is meant to keep hair back, heads clear, and sweat from dripping down worker’s faces as they deal with patients’ medical needs.

As the number of cases continues to grow, and regions of the country further their efforts to flatten the curve of trends, any equipment donated is very much needed.

In order to fulfill the vast demand for this item, Smash + Tess is asking for $5 donations, which the company will match. Every one of the donations will help the company produce the LuLove Caps, and donate them to the workers that need them.

Additionally, Smash + Tess has an offer for frontline healthcare workers, serving up 20% off their normal inventory for those that qualify.
