The CDC issued new guidance recommending all people wear masks when entering public settings like grocery stores and pharmacies. Many refugee families cannot access masks and do not have the means to make them. Help us provide face masks so refugee families can safely navigate public settings.
RESPONSIBILITIES: Help us provide reusable cloth masks to refugee families in Los Angeles!
- Provide your own material to make the masks
- Wash all masks before putting them in bags for distribution
- All masks should be mailed to our office - our teams will distribute to families with instructions on how to wear
- Contact us at carly.boos [at] rescue.org for more details
- Check out patterns here:
NOTE: we are NOT accepting surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those critical supplies must be reserved for healthcare workers and other frontline responders.
