Sew… You want to make a difference?


One way you can support healthcare workers during this time is to join other volunteers who have begun sewing face masks. 

Below is information about our preferred mask style, as well as where and when you can drop-off masks. 

Thank you for your generosity and support! 

Mask Pattern 

Our infection prevention experts have identified the pattern for homemade masks with a filter pocket that will best meet our needs. We will accept all masks that have already been made, but going forward, this mask is best.
