Can you sew? If so, hospitals all over need your help. Hospitals are asking for volunteers to sew cloth face masks for their use. Even better, facemasks are fairly simple to make and are friendly for even beginners. Face masks should be made from cotton or linen.

If the hospitals in this list are not local to you, consider reaching out to your local hospitals and see if they have a need. ***This list may become out of date as hospitals fill their demands, or exhaust them. You can contact each hospital individually to find out. You can also contact local hospitals not on the list and inquire about helping them.*** *Promedical in Toledo, Ohio: you can sign up at this link *Providence, Washington: with their signup to make masks here
