Please help with hand made masks.
If you sew, please help by making masks for yourself, family, friends and if you’re able to, make extra to donate to your neighbors. Here is an example of a mask, that is washable and has a pouch for a filter that you can replace.
There are many HOW TO videos on YOUTUBE and step by step photo tutorials. There are links to a few below.
Please make what you need for you and yours, and if you can make extra, please donate to those in need.
Or, if you need help getting them distributed, CLICK HERE and send us a message, and we will try to arrange to pick up and distribute them with your local officials.
Also, a BIG THANK YOU & SHOUT OUT to all who are already sewing and giving away masks... You’re the BEST and are helping us all!
Thank you & be safe!
