YOU ARE INVITED
Please join fellow community members, as we make sure that every child in our community has a fabric face mask! Please note that this event will only be for dropping masks off. Masks will later be distributed at our CVCH Back to School Health Fair in August, at CVCH clinics and through the Wenatchee & Eastmont school districts. Please help us spread the word by sharing this event with your friends, and thank you for helping us protect our kids! Click here for our Facebook event for easy sharing with your friends and family!
Event and Drop Off Details
On Saturday, June 27th we will have our mask collection event at the Town Toyota Center parking lot from 10AM-1PM. This will be set up with social distancing in mind, with a drive-thru for you to drop off your masks from the comfort and safety of your vehicle.
Instructions for Making Masks
We don’t want to put you in a box, in fact, we would love to see some creative masks that will get kids excited to wear them! We have included a few patterns below, including a no-sew mask pattern. Please note, that though there is a need for masks in all sizes, we think the largest need is for medium sized masks.
Preparing Your Masks for Drop-Off
Please place your masks in a zip lock bag and label what size they are (small, medium or large)
Why are you doing this now?
We know that the need for masks for children is going to continue for some time, and many children still do not have masks. That is why we have partnered with KW3 and the Wenatchee World to get the word out about this need to our community. Though these last several months have been tough, one beautiful thing we have seen is the way our community has come together. When there is a need, our valley shows up!
I don’t know how to sew, can I still help?
You can have a huge role as one of our protect cheerleaders! The best way to help right now, would be to help us spread the word to people who can sew. This way everyone who wants to can get involved!
What material should be used to make face masks?
Research shows 100% cotton works best, but any cotton materials will be acceptable.
