Sew Masks to Support Affordable Housing!

Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley


Looking for a hands-on activity at home? Trade in your hard hat and hammer for a sewing machine and fabric, and make cloth masks for essential workers, your senior neighbors, or even our Habitat staff, still working hard on site.

Looking for fabric ideas? Try using an old Habitat t-shirt! While cloth masks can’t be used for those serving on the frontline in hospitals, according to the CDC, cloth masks are a great way to prevent the spread throughout our communities. Check out this video Habitat staffer, Patti, put together to show you how to turn your Habitat t-shirts of the past into masks to serve your community or our Habitat staff.

You can also get your friends and family to join you in this activity! You can make it a zoom party or group FaceTime if you can’t be with your loved ones right now.

Completed masks for Habitat staff and volunteers can be mailed to:
