Please Assist With Sewing Face Masks

Good Morning,
 
I hope you are all doing well!
 
While we are asked to stay at home, there has been an increased demand for surgical face masks. We are helping out a local hospitals, Overlook and Morristown to name a few. They have asked us to make face masks for the staff due to low supply. 
 
A good number of our students are independent and can sew alone, others need supervision. If you feel you would like to help your child with this project, please let me know. My plan is to do a drop off on the front entrance of Thursday morning Community house in Madison  25 Cook Ave, Madison, NJ 07940 with a bag containing packets available for sewing these together. The bag will be located in the foyer of the front entrance.
 
This project will not only help out the hospital staff but also your community and giving back to the people on the front lines for their services.  
 
The mask photo attached is easy, but not a beginner project. 
 
The project requires a sewing machine, straight pins and thread.
 
I have packets made up with 10 mask materials in each bag. 20 pieces and 20 already cut elastic strips.
 
The directions are attached below.

Please email me back if you are interested. I will in turn communicate with you on how we are proceeding.
 
Thank you all for your help.
 
I miss my designers  and hope everyone is staying healthy in these challenging times.
 
This project is not limited to just our Fashion First workshops students, we welcome anyone that wants to help. So please forward this email to them, we want
to get the process of these masks successful.
 
Best regards,
Mrs. Renee
 
PS- If by chance you live in another area we also have packets waiting there. Please Just reach out and ask.
