American Red Cross wants your help to sew face coverings

If you like to sew, you could be a great help to the American Red Cross!

 

The Indiana Region of the American Red Cross is looking for people to help sew and distribute face coverings during the coronavirus pandemic. The face coverings can be hand-sewn or sewn using a machine.

 

In Indiana, more than 8,000 face coverings have already been sewn and distributed over the past seven weeks to agencies providing childcare, senior and veteran services, according to the American Red Cross–Indiana Region.

 

“These face coverings are so important. Wearing them is a simple way to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19,” said Jeff Imel, American Red Cross–Indiana Region director of Service to the Armed Forces and International Services.

 

Non-sewers are also needed for tasks like cutting out patterns, ironing, disinfecting and packaging, and inventorying and delivery to organizations.
