MASK For First Line of Protection


UPDATE 6-27

NEW REQUEST-The Moline-Coal Valley School District will be in desperate need of washable masks for the start of the school year. We have a student population of 7200 with half living in poverty. While any number would be appreciated, we are hoping to assemble 2,000 cloth masks in assorted sizes. Would you be willing help? Thanks, Stephanee Jordan cell: 309-235-7995

4/18/20 A BIG thank you to MVQG quilters came from our Genesis Hospital contact! She urges us to keep up the effort.  As a result of masks received, they met their first goal of masking ALL health professionals and staff. Their next goal is to mask all patients, therefore the basic mask (with pleats) is now most needed. N95 masks are still being accepted. Also it is not necessary to have a white/plain fabric on the inside. Both patterns are still the same as previously posted and can also be found on the Genesis website.

There are many places that we can contribute masks to.  I am listing a few who we have received requests directly from asking us to help them.  Of course, if someone has contacted you personally to help them, please do so. Keeping a count might make for an interesting statistic.  Keeping track of your hours would be a great thing to add to our volunteer hours for our nonprofit status.  Need elastic, call Mary Pement or Sue Kirk. Numbers are in the Guild directory.

The Figge extended a request for help them in providing masks for the Humility of Mary Shelter, one of their community partners.  The 3 pleated mask is what they are looking for.  Figge staff are willing to pick up from you.  Contact Brian at BAllen@figgeartmuseum.org  We would like to help them since Figge has been wonderful inviting us to have an exhibit each year and has invited us to teach classes there.

Shelli Eng has people helping provide masks for the Genesis and Unity Point Hospitals as well as their satellite clinics and hospitals.  When those have been covered (hopefully in a few weeks), they will start working on children’s sizes, homeless shelters, and crisis centers.  Drop off Donations and pick up kits which includes fabric and elastic: Mon, Wed, and Sat. from 10 AM – 1:00 PM at the Freight House in Davenport, 421 West River Drive, Davenport, Iowa. There is a tent in the West parking lot (west of the building).  Kits are in sets of 20-25 masks.
