Stitching Hearts Worldwide is partnering with the UHealth Systems group to participate in the sewing of medical-grade face masks as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. We are collecting information for volunteers as we wait for further details from our partners. Registration will go through JustServe.org when available.
Due to how quickly the size this endeavor has grown; they are anticipating 5 million masks!!, Latter-Day Saint Charities has offered use of their JustServe.org website for registration. To join the Project Protect campaign you need have an account on JustServe.org. The web page for Project Protect has not gone live yet, but you can set up your account on Just Serve so it will be an easy sign-up once they go live.
At this point they want all volunteers to individually register on Just Serve. They will be creating pick-ups/drop-offs at various locations along the Wasatch Front. We are encouraging ALL volunteers to create a Just Serve account and make sure that it is activated when you receive your confirmation email. We will notify anyone that registered with us when Project Protect goes live. You can also watch JustServe.org.
Stitching Hearts Worldwide is working with UHealth Systems of University of Utah, Intermountain Health Care, and the Latter-Day Saint Charities in the production and sewing of medical grade face masks. These are not the N-95 masks that are preferred, but are superior to cloth masks. Hospitals will sterilize these masks before they are used and will be worn by healthcare workers and patients.
We are in need of seamstresses that have access to a sewing machine in a clean, pet dander-free/smoke-free area. We have a simple pattern with easy to follow instructions and a video tutorial video.
More details to come.
Each volunteer will receive at least 1 kit of 100 pre-cut masks and ties/bands with instructions and access to a video tutorial. We ask that kits not be split up. They need to stay in groups of 100. There may be a time limit to complete your kit. You can request more kits if you have the time.
More details to come.
