Homemade Face Masks for Aspire - We Need Your Help!

For volunteers who can sew or who know any sewers - Aspire needs your help! We're asking for handmade (fabric sewn) face mask donations that will be worn by the adults with disabilities that we serve and the caretakers who continue to provide support in our community homes. Your contribution will go a long way in keeping the Aspire team healthy and safe. If you, or anyone you know can sew, please consider donating! We will graciously accept as many face masks as volunteers are able to provide.

Volunteers are encouraged to deliver face masks to one of our main locations (addresses below) during donation drop-off hours which are Mondays and Wednesdays from 10am-1pm. The first set of doors at each building will be open and we ask every donor to fill out an in-kind donation form. If the dates/times don’t work, we can coordinate delivery details on an individual basis! The sooner we can get these masks to our team and residents, the better. Thank you for your consideration and please reach out with interest and/or questions. We will get through this together!
