Request Masks

For myself or my organization (less than 50 masks)

Although masks are distributed at no cost to the recipients, we welcome financial donations from those who are in the position to contribute. Currently, mask makers pay for their own supplies. Financial donations will allow us to purchase materials and/or create mask making kits for our members, so that more masks get to more people in the future. Financial donations also support our transportation and operating expenses. Click here to donate.

Please note - due to changes in availability of our dispatch system and a majority of our drivers, as well as the easing of travel restrictions, and wider availability of masks from stores and artists -- effective June 1st, we will no longer offer door-to-door delivery to individuals.  We will be transitioning from a rapid response, same-day delivery, to a more sustainable model.  Masks for individuals may continue to be made available for pick up at periodic pop up locations.  Please follow our social media or check back often for more.  You may also contact us with ideas for staffed, reliable locations that can serve as such pick-up points.  Since mid-March, we have been actively distributing masks daily, helping essential workers, individuals in need, and community organizations.  Thank you to everyone who made this possible!

Requests for smaller quantities are generally able to be fulfilled more quickly than others.  We kindly request that if you have financial or other resources to acquire a face mask from another source, that you first attempt to seek your needed supply from this source.  This allows a greater supply of face masks to be available to those more in need and with fewer resources. 

Other mask options:

We realize many needs are acute; temporary no-sew options are possible, while we do our best to fill your request.

Support local sewists who support SFMP! Please find links to their Etsy stores here: Bee Balm Workshop, Philly High FiberHey Hani Studio. If you donate to us and also have an etsy store, please contact us and we would love to list it here. 

For my organization (50+ masks) 

Due to high demand and capacity limitations in what we are able to fulfill via volunteers, we are not able to directly fulfill requests for 50 masks or more at this time. We have partnered with a number of suppliers/vendors for commercially produced cloth masks, to whom we can refer - these are found below.

Please note, for 501(c)(3) organizations, grant funding may be available.

Large Request Due Diligence Form

While we are unable to personally handle larger requests at this time, we do want to make available a needs assessment due diligence form, the completion of which could help facilitate such interaction. The form could be used by requesting entities to provide additional details to support their need, when making requests into another volunteer group or foundation -- or by the volunteer group, foundation or government entity in evaluating such larger requests.   Form is sole property of Sew Face Masks Philadelphia; use is welcome with prior permission.
