During the COVID-19 pandemic, the CDC is advising that masks be worn by all while in public. However many individuals do not have access to masks, including those who are living outside and without permanent housing, putting them at high risk. Recovery Cafe is asking for donations of masks, which will be distributed among our members, many of whom live without safe shelter.
This is a 100% virtual, work from home volunteer opportunity. Easy to follow tutorials on how to make homemade face masks can be found online, including:

About RECOVERY CAFE
2022 BOREN AVE, SEATTLE, WA 98121, US
We are a community of individuals who have been traumatized by homelessness, addiction and other mental health challenges coming to know we are loved and that we have gifts to share.
Recovery Café was founded on the knowledge that every human being is precious and beloved regardless of past trauma, mental and emotional anguish, addictive behaviors or mistakes made. We provide a beautiful, safe, warm, drug and alcohol free space and loving community to anchor Members (our most closely-supported consumers) in the sustained recovery needed to gain and maintain access to housing, social and health services, healthy relationships, education and employment. Support is offered through weekly Recovery Circles, recovery-related classes, a community milieu, service opportunities and hospitality that includes lunch and dinner.
