Man makes protective masks in honor of aunt who lost battle with COVID-19

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- CBS 58 has brought you a lot of stories about volunteers stepping up during the pandemic. Friday, May 15, one of those volunteers shared his story about why he's making protective masks. 

"I'm just looking to pay things forward and try to stop one family from feeling how ours does," said Antoine Carter. 

Antoine Carter recently lost his aunt due to COVID-19.

Carter was working Friday in downtown Milwaukee, to make as many masks as he could in his aunt's memory. He says she was a businesswoman, a strong woman, the rock of the family. 

"Just being a good person, she was a really nice person, really helpful and kind to others. So if we all have a little bit of that, we'll be better," said Carter. 

CBS 58 asked Carter what he wants us to take away from his aunt's story. He said that lives are at stake and that even if you're not sick, it's easy to transmit and receive the virus.
