Volunteers Needed: Westville Mask Project Needs Your Help Building Protective Equipment
Friend and neighbor Linda Schultz is coordinating a protective mask project and is asking for our help!
“Do you sew? Do you have a sewing machine and an iron?
Westville women and men have coordinated a home sewing program to produce Yale New Haven hospital masks. These pocket masks lengthen the use of surgical masks, and the design is approved by our New Haven hospital network. Patterns and materials are available. We are asking you to provide the cutting and/or sewing skill. As a community, we will be completing and distributing at least a hundred masks each week for our frontline medical personnel. Let’s do it!”
Linda already has a great team of volunteers who have begun work, but they could use more help. Please use the Google form: https://forms.gle/XRBy8WDEEpf6p8Cv8
