AMAZING VOLUNTEER SEWERS! Here's an opportunity to use any cotton fabric and elastic you might have at home right now! Please see this link https://www.stopthebug.org/making-masks for patterns and more info. If you can get your finished masks (I talked to Charlie Austin, who wrote this post, and they will take any good cloth masks, no specifications) to them, great! If not, message me for help. Here's their call for help and address:
"We are in dire need of N95 masks (or any cloth Masks) for our nursing staff here at the Kenney as well as gloves and PPE and are looking to the community to see if anyone has this equipment that they would be willing to donate to us. We have been working very hard to maintain the health of our residents and so far have been completely successful in keeping COVID-19 outside our doors. But in order to continue this level of safety for those living here we need to have access to masks, in particular, which are running in short supply.
Please help us continue to keep them safe and healthy. If you have anything that you would be willing to donate to us, we would be ever so appreciative. Simply bring them to The Kenney, 7125 Fauntleroy Way SW. We have a circle drive at that address which drives right up to our front door. I, or one of our employees will greet you there and bring the donations inside to make sure we stay C-19 free.
Thank you very much for your help in this stressful time and for helping us keep your parents and grandparents safe."
