The CDC recommends making homemade face masks that will help protect and keep clean the limited supply of medical face masks available to the medical community, and if you are a sewing type person, the hospitals are begging for them.

I have my nursing license. While I am not currently in the trenches with the medical community, I have many nursing friends who I speak to often about the crisis.

Their number one problem / request? Face masks. The hospitals are running dangerously low on face mask stock.

      1. I tried the JoAnns links, but they are looking for factories to volunteer. Some of the hospitals are asking for ties, vs. elastic for durability and allergy issues and supplying a pattern of their choice of masks. Here is a link for various areas requesting masks. I have formed a new group on FB to try and gather a lot of these links, together and help our neighbors get masks as well (with the intent of members making free masks, from our caring hearts)
