Making Reusable Face Masks for Front-Line Workers
#GraphcomGivesBack During the COVID-19 Crisis
Right now, many healthcare workers are on the front lines caring for or preparing to care for patients with COVID-19.
We’ve heard from many of our clients, partners, and friends that healthcare organizations are anticipating an overwhelming need for personal protective equipment (PPE), including face masks, to safely and effectively help others.
Thankfully, we have equipment and skills that allow us to create face masks for medical workers. Right now, our Sewist Carol Strawbridge and others are hard at work cutting, sewing, and producing face masks that we’re donating to our regional healthcare partners.
We adjusted our equipment slightly to produce these cotton face masks, in addition to our normal fabrics and other projects. Elastic is somewhat hard to come by these days, but we’re finding it where we can through our vendor partners.
We are now producing and donating a few hundreds face masks each week to our healthcare partners in need on the front lines.
Check out the video above to see the face mask production in action!
*These face masks are not available for sale.
