Mask Makers - Sewing Volunteer
Jersey Cares will be continuing the collection of fabric masks to assist our non-profit partners as well as the distribution of masks to schools during COVID-19.
Sewing experience is not necessary but making the masks with a sewing machine is required, so that they can be washed and withstand the need to reuse, if necessary. We are asking all volunteers to complete a minimum of 25 masks.
If you can help, please respond to this need. Once you register below, we will send you a Mask Makers toolkit that includes: face mask patterns, a list of acceptable materials, and where materials can be purchased online.
To help us care for one another, we recommend volunteers follow these guidelines:
* Please do not register as a Sewer for the Mask Makers project if you are sick or someone in your household is sick.
* Please wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water.
