These are area drop-off sites where completed masks can be left for distribution to area healthcare facilities.
Hospitals will sterilize the masks, so there’s no need to worry about that. Just use clean materials.
• See our printable file of Re-Useable Mask Information and Instructions that you can print out to include with masks you’ve made for distribution if they’re going to places without regular sterilization capability.

People should drop off in a paper bag.
If anyone in our community has any supply of surgical masks that they can spare now we would love donations of those (dentists, optometrists, scientists etc ). We would also take construction or painters N95 equivalent masks. Any of those can be dropped at Elizabeth’s house too.
