We are a mutual aid effort organized to offer masks to anyone in need -- essential workers, health care, educational facilities, city employees, volunteer groups, libraries, schools faith and community based organizations. Requests for smaller quantities are generally able to be fulfilled more quickly than others.
If you prefer delivery, in the comments, please list your business hours and security protocols. If you are not set up to receive delivery nights and weekends, we have a preference for in-person pick up of masks, so that we don't have to risk leaving them unattended.
As you distribute masks to those in your community, we are pleased to offer the following suggested distribution and safety and care instructions, in English and En Español.
Other mask options:
If your need is immediate, temporary no-sew options are possible, while we do our best to fill your request.
In addition, if you have the financial means to do so, we also encourage the support of local sewists who support SFMP! Please find links to their Etsy stores here: Bee Balm Workshop, Philly High Fiber, Hey Hani Studio , and MLNW. (If you donate to us and also have an etsy store, please contact us and we would love to list it here, as well!). Obtaining masks from these sources, also allows a greater supply of face masks to be available to those more in need and with fewer resources.
Also, while we are not able to directly fulfill requests for 75 masks or more through volunteer efforts and home sewing machines, we have partnered with a reduced cost vendor for commercially manufactured cloth masks for $1.50 at Ee Dee Trim
