Since our earliest days at the start and height of the pandemic, DESAVO has proactively sponsored and partnered with various organizations, especially those that could not simply work remotely or sit on the sidelines. To date, we have donated over 100,000 masks to cultural institutions, public schools and organizations, including:
The Hispanic Federation (HF) focuses on empowering and advancing Hispanic communities through local, state, and national advocacy. HF works with over 100 Latino grassroots nonprofits, as well as organizations, government officials, and private sector partners.
