Brigitte Mullican, a Rockville resident has made 930 facemasks while sheltering in her home during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. Brigitte's masks have been donated to Meals on Wheels, MoCoMaskMakers, the post office and postal workers, two restaurants and various family members, friends and neighbors. She has started receiving $10 donations for masks which she has sent to the charities, Gabriel Project, Manna Food and Meals on Wheels. Her dedication to this task inspired two friends to nominate her as a Hometown Hero. Thanks Brigitte!

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:

Some thoughts on the Coronavirus from the Jean Kelly, President of the National Council of Catholic Women
" Please continue to pray for those that have been affected (by the coronavirus). The Novena for Protection Against the Coronavirus and Pope Francis' prayer to Mary During Coronavirus Pandemic are useful tools for comfort and healing....
Remember, the best protection is properly washing your hands. Praying the “Our Father” while doing this that takes the recommended 20 seconds you need. Our Lady of Good Counsel protect us!"
