Rapper Future Hendrix teamed up with an Atlanta company to donate custom sewn face masks to medical professionals treating patients infected with the Wuhan coronavirus.

Future's nonprofit, The FreeWishes Foundation, is teaming up with Atlanta Sewing Style to produce the masks for doctors, nurses, and other frontline workers in direct contact with COVID-19 patients.

The "Mask Off" hitmaker and his daughter Londyn wore custom bejeweled face masks to the 2017 BET Awards.

According to TMZ, the star, real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn, has a team of 500 people dedicated to the task of sewing masks, although it remains unclear how many pieces he is aiming to create.

"As most people adapt to the new normal of staying quarantined to protect themselves from the coronavirus, healthcare professionals do not have this privilege," a statement from The FreeWishes Foundation reads.

"In addition, they do not even have enough supplies to protect themselves from contracting coronavirus."

Future's sister, Tia-Wilburn Anderson, added it was important for her, her brother, and their family to help their community during the coronavirus pandemic.

Future joins a number of stars, including Angelina Jolie, Ryan Reynolds, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who are handing out millions to help provide meals for those in need and medical supplies for doctors and nurses treating those suffering from the virus.
