HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

We are hoping you can support our efforts to keep the St. Francis House community safe and healthy by donating face masks or the materials to make them.

DESCRIPTION

We are looking for donations of disposable masks and are accepting homemade ones as well.  We are also seeking donations of new materials for our team to make them


ITEMS NEEDED

We are also seeking donations of new materials for our team to make them. The materials that are needed are:

  • Elastic: 1/8 inch craft elastic, 1/4 inch craft elastic, hair elastics
  • Tight-knit cottons or flannel; like quilting cotton or bed sheets/pillowcases with a 600+ thread count. Cotton-polyester blends are okay too (better filtration but harder to breathe through). 
  • Coffee filters

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS
