Don't have PPE but still want to help?

Here are some ways you can make face Masks yourself!
 

If you would like to donate your hand-made face masks to a specific nursing facility, we recommend that you contact us or the facility beforehand and make sure that they are accepting hand-made PPE donations, because some facilities may not currently be accepting any or may be unfamiliar with them.

Important Notes:

  1. Please do not attempt to make any PPE if you, someone in your household, or anyone you have interacted with in the last 2 weeks is sick or showing symptoms of an illness.
     

  2. Please make sure the area you are working in is clean before making the masks, and make sure to keep all face mask materials away from household pets.

Here is the link to the instructions released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on how to make cloth face coverings (both sewn and non-sewn masks) to be worn in public by all members of the community:
