Words of Thanks from Our Community

"From the most recent news regarding COVID-19, we now know masks could be the difference in saving lives and preventing the spread of coronavirus. Wearing masks is one of the new normals we are having to get accustomed to during this time. I want to thank Opportunity Threads for partnering with us to equip our essential workers and eventually all workers and students with masks.”  

-Dr. Larry Putnam, Burke County Public Schools Superintendent

"During this crisis, I am pleased ARC is investing to produce protective equipment enabling the health and safety of those in our communities, including medical personnel…I commend The Industrial Commons and the Carolina Textile District for stepping up to take on this challenge."

-Tim Thomas, Appalachian Regional Commission Federal Co-Chairman


“Thank you - thank you. Got my order today and my masks are perfect. You all are a life saver for my 88 year old mother and myself as her caretaker.”
