Donate hand sewn masks
These masks will be made available for anyone entering our facility who may wish to take protective measures in our facility, or in public. This will allow the professional protective gear to be used exclusively for healthcare professionals who are at higher risk of exposure.
If you'd like to help, we would ask you to sew masks with specifications similar to the examples below.
