Can You Sew? Join the War Effort by Making Masks

How To Make A Face Mask for Doctors, Nurses, and Health Care Workers - Deaconess Hospital

Help Support our Country’s Medical Personnel. Volunteers across the country are making masks. See how you can help reach our goal of donating 100 million masks!

One way Republican women are helping their communities while at home is by making face masks. Maral Johnson, a Federation member in Connecticut, suggests Joann's - the fabric and craft store has set a goal of donating 100 million masks. Patterns and instructions can be found on their website (some stores even have pre-cut supplies available). Finished masks can be delivered back to Joann's for distribution to local hospitals.

Some 50 major American firms have joined the national war on the coronavirus, many volunteering to shift their focus and even assembly lines to deliver needed supplies to doctors, hospitals, first responders and others on the front lines.
