Mask Service Learning Project
Dear 4-H Families,
As we all know, these are unprecedented times in our country. The COVID-19 virus has most of us confined to our homes. Many of us are seeking a meaningful way to help those in need. We have found a way our 4-H family can help.
COVID Mask Crafters is a grass-roots effort to get local community members to sew cloth masks to help meet the desperate need nationwide. These masks do not replace the N95 masks nor surgical masks, which offer the greatest protection against COVID-19. But they can help workers and people in lower risk environments. This is where 4-H can offer “hands to larger service.”
If every county in America commits to creating 350 masks, 4-H would be responsible for donating over a million masks!
