Some days the generosity of this community is just overwhelming.  We asked for more than 2,000 masks from our community so that our beloved nonprofit workers would be able to #MaskUp!  And people are delivering each day!  My office is a little flooded and not being a seamstress, it reminds me of my Grandma’s sewing room!

There are so many colors, ties, elastic!  Wow!  Today we are fulfilling requests from many of our partners, thanks to seamstresses and seamsters!  I learned a new word today:  seamster, the male version of a seamstress.  I knew it couldn’t be seamstressor!  Maybe you knew already.

We’re helping CASA, Children’s Advocacy Center, Consumer Credit Counseling Service, Compass House, Jackson County Sexual Assault Response Team, Roots & Wings, Phoenix Counseling Center, OnTrack, Rogue Valley YMCA and the Teresa McCormick Center!  And we still need more than 1,000! 

The fabrics are so fun!  There are Cat in the Hat, Seahawks, pheasants, t-shirts, fishing!  It’s hard not to want to keep them!  Thank you!  Wow, it’s so true that when we ask for something specific, people will deliver.  Thank you so very much!  Please know that your gifts of mask will help people in need receive much needed service in a more protected environment.  You are making a difference!
