Given potential shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) we are working with community partners and volunteers to sew masks for the volunteers and clients who will be using our County Emergency Shelters. Fabric masks offer the benefit of being able to be washed and re-used. This is a perfect opportunity to make a crucial difference from home!
