SALEM, Ore. — There’s an urgent need for protective masks. Salem Health is asking volunteers to help sew to 30 to 50 masks each for their nurses and other care providers.
This week, employees created and bagged hundreds of the mask-making kits – enough to produce nearly 10,000 masks. The kits include surgical paper fabric, instructions and a bag for the finished product. Those interested in helping will need a sewing machine, white thread, scissors or a rotary cutter, and a yardstick, straight edge or cutting mat. (Volunteers should NOT use their own fabric – only the material provided.)
