6/10/2020: We are facing a need for earloop masks (pleated, deaconess, providence, surgical and similar) for those who need quick on/off or cannot struggle with ties behind the head due to health limitations. We also need neutral colors.
Mask donations will be distributed to individuals, essential workers, community organizations, healthcare professionals, shelters, and schools.
Upon receiving the form, we may coordinate a weekly pickup, match you with an organization directly, or facilitate mailing the masks.
Although masks are distributed at no cost to recipients, we welcome financial donations from those who are in the position to contribute.
Donations will help us fund supplies (sandwich bags, cutting tools, ties, and other materials), as well as mail or gas for transportation.
They can also pay for materials to create kits that can be distributed in areas with a shortage of supply or resources, so the community can participate in making masks for their neighbors.
Help us get more masks to others!
We accept all mask patterns. However, we do have recommended patterns. If you would like to sew masks, please view our suggested tutorials and patterns page through the link above.
After following all the guidelines, please complete the Donate Masks form to donate your finished product.
