Assist Your Community by Sewing a Mask AT HOME VOLUNTEER

Given potential shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE), fabric masks and gowns may be an option for some. Your time and talent is greatly appreciated in the community to help ensure safety. Fabric masks offer the benefit of being able to be washed and re-used. These can be used for people who have symptoms of being ill or congregate living facilities to prevent the spread of illness.
Masks will be used for volunteers providing essential services and donated to the Santa Cruz County Health Services Agency for distribution to medical facilities and community programs based on need and priority.
