CRAFTERS WE NEED YOU!!
Catholic Charities has a special volunteer initiative regarding COVID-19 for those of you who sew. They are are in need of volunteers to sew cloth face coverings for staff and clients. The production of homemade face coverings will help alleviate the mask shortage and allow for some level of protection for members of our community who do not have access to medical-grade masks and for those whom physical distancing is not an option.
This volunteer opportunity will be done in your home using materials you have (e.g. cotton sheets, cotton fabric) and then mailing the completed facemarks to our headquarters on G St. NW. More information and instructions can be found here:
