Rochester Needs Your Help in Making Masks

April 8, 2020

    We Needle Little Love

    Turn off the frightening TV news—it’s shear madness.  Put the Netflix binge-watching on hold—this is a pressing matter.  You are “Sew” valuable right now:  Our community needs your help in making masks for the staff and clients of our local non-profits that don’t have access to them.  They need 50,000 cloth masks this week alone. If you’re a member of a sewing group, an organization that loves to help those in need, or if you’re just an individual with time and a talent for sewing masks—we need you.

    Click HERE for all the details. Sewing isn’t as hard as it seams!  Once you’ve made a pile, you can donate them to your local Goodwill collection site.  The United Way will distribute the masks to the non-profits around Monroe County.

    We’re going old spool with this appeal:  Fire up the sewing machine or grab some needle and thread.  Even if you can’t do it yourself—but know someone who can---please pass this message along to them by forwarding this email or posting on social media.  #MonroeMaskMakers
