How to help with Masks for All
Please join the Mission Outreach Council in our effort to make masks to contribute to Houston Responds’ Masks for All Project. We need sewers, cutters, runners, and materials so please complete the form below to let us know how you would like to serve. We’ll send you an email and connect you to other volunteers to share progress, ask or answer questions, and find fellowship over Zoom.
We are calling on all skill levels to participate. Are you a crafty stitcher? There is a pattern for you. Never sewn anything before? There is a no-sew pattern for you.
And, because projects are more fun when we do them together, mask makers are invited to Zoom morning coffee meetings and happy hours where we will share our progress and help each other succeed.
Connect with the Mission Outreach Council on Tuesday, May 19, at 5:30 p.m. for a kick-off meeting. Email the Rev. Greg Seme to get the link to the Zoom party. We will have experts available to walk you through the process and let you know what supplies you will need.
Houston Responds’ Masks for All project has set the goal of engaging 1,000 churches to mobilize their congregations to make 200 masks per week. This act of love and service will ensure over 1,000,000 people in Greater Houston will have potentially life-saving masks. Visit the website for Houston Responds for more information about this worthwhile project.
We wear a mask not to protect ourselves, but to protect those around us who may be vulnerable. Wearing a face mask shows that you care for others in the community. We hope to see you at the times below!
To join any of these Zoom parties, please email the Rev. Greg Seme for the link.
