Mato & Hash; a custom apparel and printing business, announced the launch of a Christmas COVID-19 Relief Fund to support Michigan kids affected by COVID-19 this holiday season. The small business will match individual and partner donations up to $5,000 through a live GoFundMe campaign.

Since January 2016, Mato & Hash has provided embroidery, screen printing and direct to garment printing services. The company’s team lives its motto ‘Moments are Made Now’ every day through a dedication to supporting the community and enacting positive change. The company’s Christmas COVID-19 Relief Campaign will fund Holiday Wish Lists for Michigan families with children who have lost a parent or guardian to COVID-19.

“The holidays should be a time of respite and togetherness, but for many this year it will also be a solemn reminder of what we’ve lost in 2020,” said Malvin Shaman CEO, Mato & Hash.

“We launched this giving campaign to help deliver Christmas wishes to families impacted by COVID-19 and to thank our own community who have helped us stay afloat as we adapted to new business demands this year,” Shaman added. “It’s time to spread that fortune and give a little holiday cheer to our neighbors who are most in need.”

Applications for the Mato & Hash COVID-19 Relief Fund are now open for families with children under the age of 18. Families can also be nominated by a friend or other family member through Dec. 1. Individuals and businesses who want to join in are encouraged to donate to the live GoFundMe campaign, with the first $5,000 in donations matched by Mato & Hash. The total number of family wish lists covered by the campaign will depend on the final amount raised and families will be selected at random.
