of face masks/covers. These are being delivered to a hospice care center in PA tomorrow. The hospice center is considered low priority for mask shipments even though they work with clients who are the most vulnerable to the virus. I have dental masks too which I am mailing with these face masks so that the filter can be placed inside and used for a longer period. Locally, Temple Health @templeuniv
is accepting handmade masks for community use as is the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia @childrensphila
(Jefferson Health and Penn Medicine are NOT currently accepting handmade masks.) Source: @phillyinquirer .
Cleveland Clinic @clevelandclinic is accepting handmade masks. They have curbside dropoffs available through April. Look online or visit my stories page called “Community”. If you are making masks, call your local senior centers, long term care centers & hospice care centers as they may be low on the recipient list for PPE replenishment.
Deaconess.com @deaconesshealth has a database of locations requesting masks as well.
If you have materials and basic sewing skills check out the tutorial by @sweetredpoppy to make masks as well. .
