These have been crazy times for all of us with COVID19 going around. Some of us are fortunate to be able to stay home, work from home, and stay way more than 6 feet away from others. However, it is important to remember that there are many wonderful people who don’t have that option. Police officers, medical workers, Uber drivers, delivery workers, grocery workers and so many more. They are the ones who are helping on the front line with this pandemic.
Love Woolies has heard that call for help and has decided to focus on creating masks for those who need them! We applied through “Sewing For Lives” and they are able to assign us to send all of the masks we make to various destination in the U.S. that are in need of them. These masks are simply mask covers that can be used over official medical masks for better protection. To hear more about our efforts, you can see what we shared with the public this evening on the news.
If you want you help in our efforts, we would love that!!!
If you are local to Utah we would love it if you would join us. Please use this Google Form that will help us get your information and allow you to specify how you would like to be involved. Options include: Picking up and sewing masks, donating fabric (100% Cotton), and Dropping Off Finished Masks that are already made. Using this Google Form will help us to all stay on the same page.
Picking Up and Dropping Off of Masks will involve coming to Vineyard, Utah, where our supplies are located.
You can visit this website to find out how to make masks. Pay attention to the specific type of fabric that is needed!
We have created two YouTube videos that show you how to make the masks!
If you would like to be involved with sewing masks but are not local to Utah, please contact Sew For Lives; they’ll give you an assignment or assign you to an order in progress. If you’re not much of a seamstress, you can donate fabric, elastic, or shipping costs.
If you would like to donate money directly to Love Woolies to support any additional costs that may come up as we move forward with this project (most likely to be used for shipping costs) we would greatly appreciate it. These donations can be made through PayPal.
We will giving fun updates about this effort on our Instagram @lovewoolies, so make sure to check that out to find out even more!
