An Outpouring of Support
In response to a recent shortage and hospital requests for face masks, we’ve received many inquiries from those interested in helping. We are grateful to be part of a community that has such a strong will to help others.
As with many things lately, the protocol regarding COVID-19 is updating constantly. And, like you, we have been working to stay informed. We urge those interested in making masks to visit the Providence Hospital, WHO, and CDC websites for the most up-to-date and medically-relevant information regarding masks and preventative measures. The effectiveness of homemade masks is still being deliberated, so we encourage you to do your research! The Craft Industry Alliance wrote and in-depth post exploring the pros and cons of making masks at home, and we recommend checking it out.
A Worthy Cause
We are so impressed by our community’s eagerness to dive in and help out during this time of uncertainty. Many people have been hit hard by the closures of their workplaces and are facing food insecurity. For those still wishing to help, a good alternative to making masks is to donate to your local food bank. Here in Montana, we suggest making a monetary donation to the Montana Food Bank Network.
Thank you for looking out for each other. No matter where you are, stay in & stay safe.
