The Fairbanks Ice Dogs are selling custom masks to help slow the spread of COVID-19 with a portion of the proceeds going to the Greater Fairbanks Community Hospital Foundation to support frontline healthcare staff at Foundation Health Partners.

“In my opinion, they’re the coolest masks around,” said Ice Dogs general manager Rob Proffitt. “We’re just trying to do our part in following the mandate here and keeping people safe and the most exciting part is our partnership with Foundation Health Partners.

“They’ve been an amazing supporter of Ice Dogs Hockey for a long time so it’s not only having a partnership with such a wonderful community partner, but also giving back to our front line workers in this time of need.”

The masks are $20 and available in two sizes: small/medium and large/x-large. For each mask sold, $5 will be donated.
