INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — A group of people in Irvington is doing its part to help during the coronavirus crisis.
The “Irvington Mask Makers” are volunteers with a specific goal in mind: making enough masks for those who need them.
They’re following the CDC guidelines and sewing the masks with two layers of protection. They aren’t asking for anything in return.
They’re just asking anyone who can sew to help if they can or donate supplies.
“The heroes are the people wearing our masks on the front lines. We are just the behind the scenes suppliers. Also, these masks are for the individuals especially the elderly people who don’t want to go to the grocery store without a mask, people that have asthma, people that have small children. They don’t want to take them out without a mask,” said volunteer Tina Lawler.
They have a Facebook group called “Irvington Mask Makers” where you can post if you need masks or want to help make them. If you’re interested in volunteering, donating supplies, or need a mask, click here to join the group.
