MCHHS is currently in urgent need of homemade / reuseable facemasks. Donated facemasks may be dropped off at the hospital front entrance. We are also accepting cotton or quilted cotton materials, elastic and thread to share with those who are sewing, but have ran out. Please note: The CDC recommends sewing the elastic all the way through the end, but this pulls the ears forward and does not allow the mask to stay in place properly. Please just attach the elastic to the end and not funnel through the material. Thank you for your support.
