You can help support local Medical Personnel by making protective masks, gowns

face mask

As hospitals and health care facilities run dangerously low on critical supplies, many people are jumping in to help by making protective masks, gowns and other essential items to donate to local hospitals.

JOANN Fabrics and Crafts store in neighboring Laguna Hills is currently serving as a collection point for people making these supplies at home. Folks and local crafting and sewing groups wanting to “make-to-give” to the effort can take advantage of JOANN’s ship-to-home and curbside pickup options, and find tutorials to create the items at joann.com/maketogive. Learn more about the effort at this link and call 949-586-3496 with questions.
