The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recently recommended face coverings to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus.
Please help us provide homemade sewn masks to our partner ministries. Some people who are served by these organizations don’t have access to sewing machines, but we know many in our congregation do! We hope to be able to distribute masks to:
- The Ramsey County Family Shelter and Project Home
- The food shelf in our building
- The daycare in our building
- Walking With a Purpose, serving the chronically homeless
- The Lift, serving East Side families
- If we have enough, we could also hand some out to workers at the gas stations and stores in our neighborhood!
There are hundreds of online video tutorials that provide instructions for sewing masks at home. But as far as we can tell, there’s no consensus among medical professionals about the best design. So pick a style and get sewing! Here are some options to consider, but if you have a different style you prefer that’s fine too!
- North Memorial Health instructions
- Joann Fabric instructions
- Hobby Lobby instructions
- Face masks for kids – also needed!
- Quick & easy
Delivering your Masks
Once you’ve made some masks, drop them off at Woodland Hills at Door B from 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday. We’re limiting the traffic in our building as much as possible, so just look for the yellow box outside the doors.
Thank you so much for your help. We look forward to helping provide masks for our neighbors!
