#911 Virtual At Home Project - Sew Face Masks

Save to Favorites

Michigan Community Service Commission

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 1 person is interested

In the state of Michigan, Volunteers are needed to sew children and adult face masks. The masks come as a kit that needs to be sewn either by hand but more efficiently by a sewing machine. All supplies other than thread will be sent to volunteers and masks come in bundles of 100 and 500. Volunteers are asked to sew the masks and donate them to organizations in their Michigan community that serve children and adults. Ideal organizations include preschools, daycare centers, headstart programs, food programs, Community Action Agencies, youth serving organizations, foster care organizations and schools. The masks can be used at the organization and/or given to families to ensure children are kept safe from the spread of COVID-19

Please email sherrym2@michigan.gov if interested in sewing masks and be sure to include:

Your name
Complete mailing address
Phone number
The number of masks you would like to sew and Size (Child Small, Child Medium, and Adult)
If you have an organization in mind to donate the masks to, please indicate. If you need help identifying an organization, please let us know and we will help.

Mission Statement

The Michigan Community Service Commission (MCSC) utilizes service as a strategy to address the state’s most pressing issues and empowers volunteers to strengthen communities.

Description

Since its founding in 1991, the MCSC has granted more than $100 million in public and private funds to community organizations enabling them to engage millions of Michigan citizens in volunteer service. This support has leveraged more than $85 million in local resources to further support these community volunteer initiatives.

Volunteerism doesn't just happen. Most social service and nonprofit organizations rely heavily on volunteers as a valuable human resource; that resource must be stewarded carefully and supported continuously. Volunteer recruitment, management, training, placement, and recognition require resources and attention. With continued public and private support, along with the necessary training, resources, and coordination needed to help people serve, volunteerism can become a way of life for all Michigan citizens.

It is our vision that all Michigan residents, beginning at an early age and continuing for a lifetime, meet community needs and find personal fulfillment through service-learning and volunteering. Michigan is an ideal place to live and is recognized nationally because its citizens believe so strongly in the value of service as a way of life.
