Westport resident, Virginia Jaffe, is leading a homemade mask initiative to support essential workers in our community. She and her team have organized sewing productions within their own homes, making over 100 washable and re-usable masks a day.
Last Friday, April 10, her team sewed 135 masks ready to be donated to hospitals and other medical offices with essential workers.
Helping hands are welcome! Jaffe’s team is looking for donations of thin rope elastic (5 mm) or financial contributions to buy fabric, thread, and elastic from a local Norwalk supplier. To offer hands-on help, you can coordinate with her team to make masks using your own sewing machine.
Thank you for supporting our local heroes and helping to keep our community safe!
