Alum who is making masks from Mission & Ministry Brianna Baker Linda A LeaheyShow MyInfo popup for Linda A Leahey 5/12/2020 11:29:02 AM

Message from Jeanette:
 
 "One mask made, one mask donated. We are a grassroots organization that began with a few women answering the call to donate handmade masks during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic.  We have made 1,600 masks and donated 800 to healthcare workers, food-service workers, essential employees, and high-risk individuals in West Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. We are now offering our masks to help everyone who needs our product to go to the grocery store and other essential businesses.  For every mask we make, we will donate one to the groups listed above. We are making them as fast as we can to get them into the hands of all in need. So far, we have been blessed to ship next day.  Our masks are washable and have pleats to adjust the size to fit your face. We send them with the elastic untied so that customers can tie the ends to fit their needs. We can order material upon request.  Help us continue our mission."
