Hand-Sewn Face Masks

As this COVID-19 Pandemic continues, Allina Health is asking for donations of hand sewn face masks. If you would like to sew masks and have the needed supplies already at home, please check out the following link for instructions:
Masks can be safely donated daily now through April 5, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at most Allina Health hospitals. Both Mercy Hospital campuses – Mercy campus in Coon Rapids and Unity campus in Fridley are accepting masks. When you arrive to donate masks, remain in your car. A staff member will come to you to accept your donation. Look for “mask donation” signage as you arrive.
There is also a shortage of elastic in stores. If you have extra elastic (rope, beading cord or 1/8” flat) at your home that you could donate, contact Pastor Connie ctiede@zionanoka.org.
