Current PPE Needs Include:

4 | Making Face Masks

—UPDATE—
Because of the incredible generosity of our community, we have reached our goal of having 20,000 handmade masks on-hand for our Associates. If you’d like to donate homemade masks now or in the coming weeks, we encourage you to reach out to other local organizations, for example: nursing homes, homeless shelters, food banks, grocery stores, etc.

If you are interested in helping make masks for other organizations, watch this video that provides information on the type of masks needed. It also includes a pattern. Masks should be made with tightly woven cotton cloth.

Questions? Call 574-647-2400.
