Connecting Makers to Requests for Masks
I am collecting direct asks from organizations on this page. Although I add requests daily, be aware that some of the requests may have been filled. Most posted requests have drop-off or contact information for making your donation.
RELIEF CRAFTERS OF AMERICA
RCoA is a large-scale operation with a nationwide distribution network. Please go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/reliefcraftersofamerica/ to join their group. They are HIGHLY EXPERIENCED in delivering masks on a large-scale. RCoA has requested that all volunteers work through their Facebook group.
SEWING FOR LIVES
Sewing for Lives is based in Utah and looking for help with the location of healthcare facilities in need and sewers. They are based in Utah, however, the community is already nationwide. Join their Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Sewingforlives/
They are launching a ‘matchmaking service’ and have instructions for the masks they need in the FB group.
I am collecting resouces on our 3D page and looking for help coordinating need with makers. If anyone is working on this and wants to combine efforts, please email email@example.com or DM me through the Facebook group ttps://www.facebook.com/groups/asksformasks/
I have several people who I know are working on face shields. Relief Crafters is not coordinating that right now. Anyone who has already started work on this, email me so we can coordinate. Melissa Raulston
If you would like to make a direct request to sewers in your area, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the information and I will publish it with an accompanying call on our Facebook group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/asksformasks/ . You can also post your request directly to our Facebook group – please preface your request with your CITY/COUNTY, STATE in all caps so it is easy for sewers to scan the page and find requests in their area.
