Dena's Mask Making Army
Using Facebook to organize how we'll do things and who's got what once supplies come.
There's plenty of jobs to do. Sewing, cutting, flipping, folding, buying, driving around porch drop offs... you do what you can but it's an opportunity to help so get your kiddos involved and let's make some masks.
Most of the requests have come from long-term care facilities and emergency medical technicians, but they’ve also heard from veterinarians and doctors in private practice who said they would donate some of their manufactured masks to facilities with higher needs if she could replace them with homemade masks, Mehling said.
People who want to help can donate quilting-grade 100% cotton fabric and elastic that’s one-quarter inch or one-eighth inch wide, Mehling said. They could also use drivers to help ferry masks from the makers to her porch, she said. Masks are donated to requesting facilities on a first-come, first-served basis.
