We Need Sew Many Masks!

Do you have a love of sewing and a desire to help out? If so, we need you! This is a great way for you to make a difference from your own home.

In our program, before working families experiencing homelessness move into transitional housing, they stay at one of our two shelter facilities. Normally this is a time of recuperation and goal setting, but the current health crisis has created obvious challenges. We are working diligently to get our presently-sheltered families into housing. But until these families can move, they and our shelter staff are at increased risk of transmitting and contracting the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Masks are one of the best things people can use to protect themselves from COVID-19, but they are in very short supply.

That is where you and your amazing sewing skills come in! We have an immediate need for at least 50 masks sewn by our SHARE community. Don't worry if you have never sewn a mask before! Atrium Health has created a wonderful how-to document to help.

Here is how you can help and #SHAREfromHome: If you have experience with sewing, please sign up for this opportunity. Our Community Engagement Manager, Josiah Daniels, will then reach out to you to confirm your interest, share the how-to document, and provide delivery information. Then you can put your skills to work and help protect CFH Families.

*In the interest of protecting everyone's health, you will need to have the equipment to be able to sew masks in your own home.*
