I said I would let you know when I know.
Well, I know now.
I have been contacted by many friends and family to begin making masks.
Here is my request to you: IF YOU SEW:
- PLEASE go to the website/Facebook page of your local hospital and see if they have requests. They will tell you if they are excepting homemade masks and specifics of pattern they want used
- If you have a family member or friend that is a healthcare worker: ask them if they are in need and what pattern they are being told to use
- If you have a family member or friend that is immunocompromised, ask them if they are in need
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
THERE ARE MANY HOSPITALS/CLINICS/SYSTEMS that are not excepting these masks at this time.
BELOW I WILL UPDATE AS I FIND DIRECTIONS FROM LOCAL (TO ME) HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS NEEDS:
Here in Wisconsin, we are just now getting the GO AHEAD from some HealthCare systems to start making masks and donating them.
THEDACARE has requested masks made from this Pattern: VIDEO TUTORIAL HERE
PER MARSHFIELD HEALTHCARE’s Facebook Page
Please refer to above page for the locations to donate
