Assist Your Community by Sewing a Mask AT HOME VOLUNTEER

Save to Favorites

Volunteer Center of Santa Cruz County



Given potential shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE), fabric masks and gowns may be an option for some. Your time and talent is greatly appreciated in the community to help ensure safety. Fabric masks offer the benefit of being able to be washed and re-used. These can be used for people who have symptoms of being ill or congregate living facilities to prevent the spread of illness.

Masks will be used for volunteers providing essential services and donated to the Santa Cruz County Health Services Agency for distribution to medical facilities and community programs based on need and priority.

Completed masks can be dropped off at the Volunteer Center Monday through Thursday between 10AM-12PM or 1PM-4PM. A bin will be available in the downstairs lobby. Please place your masks in a bag along with a note that includes your full name and the number of masks inside.

Address: 1740 17th Ave, Santa Cruz, CA 95062
