Face Masks

Check with local nursing homes to see if they can use handmade fabric masks for their staff to wear as a measure of protection for the residents they serve. While we realize that the fabric masks are not surgical/medical grade and cannot be used as Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for health care workers, perhaps there are people in care facilities who can use them.

Also, check with your local colleges.

Concordia Nebraska has a campaign to gather 2000 masks to give to their students. Can you help them reach their goal? Please send masks to:  Concordia University, Nebraska, Attention:  Mask Drive SLO, 800 North Columbia Avenue, Seward, NE 68434.

Here are two patterns: Face mask with elastic or Face mask with ties.
