Making Protective Masks



If you’re looking for a way to be agents of resurrection in these days when resurrection is getting difficult to see, here is a way you can contribute.


We’ve been in conversation with a couple of medical professionals in our area who have hammered home just how underprepared our healthcare system is to handle the number of COVID-19 cases that will come up in the coming days. There are many things they are short on, but one of them is protective masks, necessary for keeping caregivers safe and able to provide help.


This is where we need your help. 


If you have a sewing machine or can borrow one, you can help make a difference.


There are simple patterns and instructions online for how to assemble a protective mask at home using readily available materials, and if you find yourself with free time while sheltering-in-place, you can help provide caregivers with much needed protective masks.


Assemble the masks at home, and then over the next few weeks, on Fridays between the hours of 1-2pm, drop off your masks at the box by the front door of Northminster (2701 Lamy Ln). Someone will be present inside the building to monitor the drop-offs, though we ask that you maintain a distance of 6 feet and refrain from touching the front door. We’ll ensure they get to caregivers that need them.


Here’s what you do:


Thank you all for embodying the light.
