1000 Masks by Easter

Calling Out Mask Makers for StGiles

When we heard about the Tassie Face Mask Project, StGiles wanted to help.

We knew that as an essential service, masks were part of our personal protection equipment and we needed a reliable source.

In August we held a workshop at Amy Road where staff and volunteers had lessons in mask making from the Project’s gurus Bronwin, Jenny and Amanda.

We purchased material, elastic and the Mask Project team gave us patterns and we are building a volunteer base of mask makers for StGiles.

In return we provided in-kind marketing support for the Mask Project and provided them with a stall at our first COVID-safe Niche

Market where they raised $1000.

Can you sew or do you know someone who’d like to help StGiles build its stockpile of face masks?

We can provide kits containing everything you need PLUS you can keep some masks for your immediate family.

In return you are helping us and the people we support stay safe during COVID-19
