Coordinators from THRIVE will distribute the masks regionally. Fabric masks are able to be sterilized and used repeatedly. If you have the ability to manufacture fabric masks you are asked to use the following guidelines:
WHAT YOU NEED
The goal of our mask is to stop droplets. So you want to go for something that filters those out. Then again, you need to be able to breathe through your mask, so we want fabric that breathes, without letting droplets through. In addition, we want the inside to be comfortable on our skin. So here I’d suggest a tightly woven cotton or viscose/rayon. Please remember that both women and men in a variety of roles may wear these masks.

Fabric masks can be dropped off at the following locations. Please leave your donations outside in the donation boxes by the designated doors (details below) and staff will retrieve. Thank you!
