Hip2Save reader, Stephanie, was looking for a practical way to help out during the coronavirus pandemic that would make a difference. When her friend presented her with an opportunity to help make reusable face masks for local hospitals and healthcare workers, she said YES and got to work! Check out her story…
“As a stay-at-home mom, it’s hard to feel like I’m making a difference during this pandemic. So when I got a text from a friend asking for those willing and able to help sew masks for local hospitals, I knew I could do this!
I have a drawer of extra fabric and supplies, so I got to work. I found a quick and easy YouTube video with instructions. I made some for local hospitals, hospice, and many friends and family members. Although I can’t produce as many as I would like (3 kiddos at home), I still feel really good knowing I am doing something to help make a difference!
If you have any sewing skills, you too can help. Even if you don’t make them for the hospitals, you can make them for your family, friends, and neighbors. It’s a small way to give back and make a difference!
Please note that I did not make all the masks in the picture with the nurse. This a collection from several local seamstresses that we all donated.”
Thank you for giving back!
There was clearly a lot of time, love, and resources involved in making all of those reusable face masks for local hospitals, friends, and family. Thank you, Stephanie, for taking the time to make a difference! ❤️
