Volunteers are needed to make masks!
The United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties, in cooperation with the office of Senator Joe Manchin, announce support for MASKS 4 WV initiative - a statewide call to sew.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE). Volunteers who have the ability to sew are being asked to make masks. If you are not able to sew, donations of clean and new 100% cotton fabric and elastic that can be used for ear loops will be accepted.
Watch an instructional video here:
Here are three sites for you to drop off your completed masks:
- Kroger, 1851 Earl L. Core Road
- Clear Mountain Bank location (temporarily closed) inside the Kroger at 350 Patteson Drive
- Clear Mountain Bank location (temporarily closed) inside the Kroger at 500 Suncrest Towne Center Drive.
For questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to make a monetary donation to MASKS 4 WV, the local United Way has established a Response and Recovery Fund in response to the pandemic. Just text the word COVID19MPC to 41444 or click here.
