El Puente, CCVI Hispanic Ministry in Jefferson, Missouri, collaboratively carried out 500 mouth masks to distribute among the vulnerable population.
We share some photos of the Sisters of the Emmaus community working on the elaboration of protective masks.
Thank you so much for your contributions of time and energy and goodwill for this project. We are so happy to report that 582 masks have been delivered thus far and 488 masks are still in process. So far the grand total of our contribution will be 1062 masks. Congratulations. This is no small accomplishment!
Our Sisters, friends, and collaborators send us photos of their workspaces for sewing masks.
Margaret Mitchell distributes mask kits to volunteers. Notice her technique maintaining the appropriate social distancing, holding the body of the bag as she places it on the ground so that the volunteer is the only one to touch the handles of the bag. Pretty neat!
In these exceptional times, of social distance and quarantine, the Sisters have not stood still. In the face of the reality we live in, the Sisters have put their hands to work, or rather, threads to their sewing machines.
