Thanks for your interest in helping to sew much needed masks for health care providers, first-responders and other front-line workers such as critical food distribution volunteers. Once you’re ready to drop-off, please let me know which location you are taking them to so we can be sure to pick-up right away. Thanks again!!
Sewing masks to help with the PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) shortage due to the Coronavirus Crisis is a great way to help in this time of need. We are responding to the call from health care workers to create masks while they procure the N95s they need. These masks are NOT INTENDED to replace N95 masks. Rather, they can be placed over N95s to prolong usage, or used in non-critical areas of healthcare to free-up PPE resources.
