Angel Gowns of South Bay is jumping into the fight to provide home-sewn masks to our community medical personnel, essential workers, care givers and critical infrastructure employees. Until the shortage of medical-grade masks is resolved, Angels are doing their part in providing the best alternatives they can construct.
Mask kits (cut and packaged by our volunteers) are available for pick-up, and completed masks can be dropped off. Social distancing protocols are followed. Collected masks are donated to local organizations. Some of those that have requested masks: Harbor Community Clinic, Torrance Memorial, Providence Hospital (San Pedro & Torrance), and Little Sisters of the Poor.
Our wonderful angel, Silvia Noriega, has created a video showing how to sew a face mask with an opening for insertable filters. It’s very easy to follow. Check it out on Angel Gowns’ YouTube channel here:
If you would like to volunteer or have more questions, please check out the Angel Gowns of SouthBay Facebook Group for more details, patterns, studio hours, etc. The demand keeps growing, and masks are flying out of the studio!
Above all, everyone keep yourselves healthy and safe!
