Community Heroes – Cynthia Lopez, 26
By Tehya Rassman
Cynthia Lopez of Mission, Texas, is a receiving clerk who does inventory control at Essity. She started making masks for her friends and family and soon began making them for others in the community when word spread about what she was doing.
“I started doing it for friends or for the community because if one person doesn’t get sick, that’s at least one person less that could get my family sick.”
