Update on Mask-Making Project
April 8, 2020
On Tuesday Christine Kenealy delivered the first batch (more to come) of 30 face masks sewn by Englewood Democratic volunteers to the Englewood Fire Department. In addition, they delivered fifteen masks to a local assisted living facility. The group of Democratic mask-makers is careful to point out that these hand-made masks are not “medical quality,” and they come with an explanation about their limitations and how to use them.
EDC Members Sewing Masks for Local Organizations
April 1, 2020
When the Englewood Democratic Club heard about nursing homes, hospices and hospitals asking for any kind of protective gear they decided recruit members of other clubs and do the work. Several people have joined in the mask-making, doing the washing, ironing, deliveries, research into needy organizations and care providers needing masks. The club is purchasing materials including 100% cotton fabric along with bias tape and grosgrain ribbon for straps. They already delivered a batch to the Englewood Area Fire Control District.
