Student volunteers seek fabric donations for cloth masks

The WUSM Medical Student COVID-19 Response Team is seeking fabric donations (and other supplies) to make cloth face masks per CDC guidelines. The team is working in partnership with PrepareSTL to distribute masks to high-risk members of the community. The team already has made masks for all student volunteers (such as those delivering food to quarantined people, providing child care for frontline health-care workers, making 3D-printed PPE, and contact tracing with the St. Louis County Health Department).

Fill out this form if you can provide any of the following materials, and a volunteer will arrange a contact-free pickup. Needed materials include: 100% cotton fabric, preferably quilting-grade or from a fabric store (no pillowcases/bed sheets/Tshirts); thread; elastic; bias tape; Ziploc bags; and sewing machines (to lend temporarily, not donate).
