We have also reached out to our hospital and medical community. They could use the services of anyone who can sew! There is a movement around the nation to sew cloth face masks and N95 mask covers do to the shortage. Hilo medical center is excepting sewn masks in anticipation of a likely shortage. If anyone can help out that would be great.
Below is a reference link with patterns and material requirements for these masks:
Please note that the drop off centers are from a doctor's previous home state, please drop off at our school offices or the Hilo Medical Center.
Abundant prayers of health and patience to all,
