We have established a collection point at the church for those of you who would like to assist our emergency responders and healthcare workers in our area. Let's make face masks! Please go to the following website for the pattern and directions: https://amp.courierpress.com/amp/2865273001 or 
 turbanproject.com/patterns

Can't sew?? That's okay!

 Do you have any material laying around that could be used for this project?  Or elastic that could be repurposed?

Our sewers could use your help with this!

MaryAnn Cass is the point of contact for ensuring the masks are delivered to the appropriate people at the appropriate time.

 

If you do not feel comfortable taking your donations of face masks to the church, call MaryAnn at 540-961-5433 and she will be happy to pick them up from you.
