Hello Rotarians, 
Our club is supporting the million mask challenge. Home sewers across the nation are making reversible masks for health care workers and essential employees that will be needing them. These masks are NOT N95 that would be effective against the COVID-19 virus, but these masks are crucial for freeing up those masks for the health care workers who need them the most. These can be used by workers who are seeing patients that are non-COVID-19, or who are not in direct contact. So they are important with what's coming.  I will add the mask pattern to the download section to the left for those who sew or know sewers. 
Brenda is spearheading our clubs efforts. Don's wife, Donna is sewing, Peter is mobilizing a team at the hospital to make 2,000 of them and others are donating supplies for sewers and contacting other sewers. 
We need help with supplies! Send them to Brenda or she can pick up when she does a grocery run next time. If you order on line you can send directly to her home. 
Fabric - 100% cotton, colorful. The masks are reversible and each side should be a different color. If you can gather 1-2 yards for us that is helpful. 
Elastic 1/4" - any color, but it won't work if it's wider (it pops off the ears) THIS IS IN SHORT SUPPLY Please look for this on your grocery outings. Most grocery stores have a small notion section. Dollar General also might have them.
Wire, paper clips - I think I have enough of these but if you plan on making them you will need wire so the nose can form to the face more securely.

Keep healthy and safe Rotarians.
