Mask Giveaways - A Covid-19 Response Project

Do you sew? We need your help! We know the impacts of Covid-19 are hitting black, brown, and poor communities the hardest. We’re aiming to get 500 masks made within the next few weeks to give away within these communities.


Please join us by either sewing masks, donating masks, or donating money to purchase masks. 


Can you help us reach our goal?

Hi all. To date we've received 170 masks with another 75 being dropped off tomorrow. We also received a donation of $300 to go towards mask making efforts.

Our Restorative Justice Team will be heading out this Saturday and will be handing out masks and information on Covid-19 at Woodmans West from 1-2pm. We will continue to hand out masks at local grocery stores over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for locations and times.

We know the impacts of Covid-19 continue to hit Black, Brown, and poor people the hardest. We are looking forward to getting masks to these communities starting this weekend. Thank you to the timebank members and community members who continue to sew masks and give to this project. We appreciate your support.
