We want to thank our community for its outpouring of support during this very challenging time. As COVID-19 affects our community, we are anticipating a substantial increase in demand for our personal protective equipment (PPE). Many of you have stepped up by donating medically approved PPE, including N-95 respirator masks, shoe covers, etc. Others are supporting us by making cotton masks based on CDC guidelines and making 3-D printed face shields to support our back up supply. Please know that all of the donated items will be added to our inventory for use at such time the need arises. Your support and efforts are very much appreciated, and we are extremely fortunate to operate in a strong community in which our businesses and residents are so generous. We will get through this together.
Below you will find a pattern for the preferred style of mask we are accepting (we will still accept others), Frequently Asked Questions, and a YouTube Tutorial.
