PRIDE Museum Donates 850 Masks For Underserved To Help Reduce The Spread Of COVID-19
PRIDE Museum's 'Mask Me Network' project has produced and distributed 850 pieces of 3-Layered Cloth Washable and Reusable Masks to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
By: PRIDE Museum
PRIDE Museum took aim and distributed masks in underserved communities and reached those individuals who need masks to continue providing essential services and are in direct exposure to the virus while we all adhere to "Shelter In Place" orders.
A deliberate focus was placed on serving the elderly who received the masks through social distancing methods by local churches and neighborhood associations.
With adherence to CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines for 3-Layered cloth mask production, the organization's Board of Directors calculated the project and fundraised to purchase sewing supplies that amounted to: FABRIC = 189 yards; THREAD = 27,000 yards; ELASTIC = 600 yards; ROUND SHOELACES = 400 pair. The sewing labor was generously donated and USPS was selected as the preferred distribution service.
PRIDE Museum masks are working to protect people in 55 Cities and 13 States.
