Operation Bandana New Mexico began as an effort to arm local healthcare providers with cloth masks as they faced the uncertainty of a dwindling supply of protective equipment. To date, with the help of its affiliates, OBNM has made and distributed more than 20,000 masks. Every mask is free to the recipient and made by a volunteer.

Recently, OBNM has expanded its work to include the delivery of necessary goods to the people and clinics of the Pueblos and the Navajo Nation.
