In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, LOHA has teamed up with local community members to organize volunteers to create Face Masks to support local health care professionals. We are calling all people who sew to make fabric face masks for our local hospitals, doctor's office, nursing homes etc. This is a volunteer project to serve our community, not to sell the masks. The masks are not intended to replace PPE. They are indeed a last resort for those who do not have any protection.
We are proud to partner with these amazing individuals to serve our community and help meet this critical need. We will continue to create and donate masks as long as there is a need locally.
If you are health care professional in need of face masks, you may request face masks by clicking the picture below and filling out the form.
The next delivery date is May 7
If you are creating Face Masks and would like to donate them through our group, click the picture below to fill out the form.
The next date to drop off is May 6
