Over 10,000 masks have been created and distributed thanks to a Facebook commuity of sewers in Bucks County.
For the last four weeks, the Mask Makers of Doylestown have been making face masks for health care professionals.
“One of the organizers has turned her porch into a supply center for individuals to get the materials needed to make the masks, like fabric, elastic, thread, bobbins, needles and more,” explained Lynne Goldman, a member of the group. “Everyone contributes whatever they can, and after making the masks, brings them back to the porch where they are distributed to health care organizations who have requested masks. Some people can sew, others who can’t, cut fabric, etc. Everyone pitches in.”
