Rotary Club of Fonthill together with partners have produced and distributed over 2,100 masks to date!
 
We are asking for your help to continue producing home sewn fabric masks.  

For April 27, 2020 update: myPelham.com
 
What do we need?
  • We are looking for quilting cotton ( larger squares), tightly woven cotton, cotton/poly blends.  Donations of old cotton or cotton/poly sheets or clean pillow cases would work.   Tightly woven tea towels could help if they are not stained.  Apparently men's dress shirts are often good options.  
  • We are looking for 1/8 inch elastic or 1/4 inch twill cotton ribbon.
  • We also invite any members or their family to participate in this project.
Ann H has contacted "Sewing Army" in Niagara Falls and Alllison Kares at Movement Unlimited for advice on our project. 
 
Our committee believes that there is going to be an exponential need for these masks in the weeks to come.  We all know that the medical masks should be dedicated to our health care workers.
 
If you have fabric or would like to participate let us know and we will put a group together.  
 
Yours In Rotary,
Mel, Ann, Annie and Angela
