Sew Face Masks Philadelphia is a Philadelphia Area (including South Jersey) grassroots community organization, established mid March 2020, directly in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We provide handmade reusable face masks to those who request it.
We support essential workers, health care providers, volunteers, community organizations, city agencies, non profits, supported living, educational facilities, faith based groups, and individuals and families in need of masks.
We are also committed to providing up to date safety, wear and care, and education information related to the proper use of handmade face masks.
In order to ensure that scarce disposable Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as surgical face masks go to higher-risk settings where they are needed most -- we can assist by providing reusable face masks for general use in order to protect each other.
We have built a community of volunteer sewists and are committed to supporting and empowering them with the information and tools to meet the very acute need for face masks locally. We arrange for a pick up, or provide delivery instructions to a drop-off location or directly serve a nearby request.
Since our creation, we have also been strong advocates for the #Masks4All movement and believe that, when in the community, every individual should wear a reusable face mask to help
flatten the curve.
Let's join together in being a part of the solution. By the community, for the community.
