You can help during the Covid-19 crisis by sewing surgical face masks for doctors and nurses. North Coast has received requests from nurses, doctors and other organizations asking for them. They will be delivered to the appropriate personnel by the Community Service Team.
Supplies: 100% cotton works best, but any cotton materials will be acceptable. Bias tape or elastic is needed. In the event that you can’t find either, there are tutorials on how to make them with just fabric. Use fabric you have sitting at home, or check out JoAnn Fabrics for their special sales during this time. Order online and pick up at the door.
