Thanks for the great day everyone!

Current Mask Needs

Crafting Change has received multiple requests from several organizations. These are vetted requests that have been verified as of 8/15 as still having a need.

1. Hopa Mountain- Rural Tribal communities of the Northern Rockies has requested 5000 children's masks.

  • ages 5-12 in any pattern.

  • 2 layers of cotton with a filter pocket OR 3 layers (the 3rd layer can be cotton or non-woven polypropylene).

  • We recommend removable nose wires for anyone over 8.

  • These masks can be elastic ear loops or have t-shirt ties for older kids in the SWO pattern found in the files section of our Facebook Group.

2. Mental Health Resource Center has requested 1000 Adult masks for their inpatient psychiatric facility.

  • Any pattern okay

  • elastic only and have NO nose wire: (these requirements are for the safety of the patients.)

  • 3 layer masks (either 3 layers of cotton or a 3rd layer of non-woven polypropylene). They will accept masks with filter pockets, however, with the patient population they deal with it is very hard to monitor the use of filters and with their close quarters and the changing virus, a 3 layer mask will offer them better protection. 

3. The Farmworker Association of Florida has requested 500 Adult and 500 children masks for school aged children 5-12 years old.

  • Any pattern okay

  • 2 layers with a filter pocket or 3 layers. The 3rd layer can be cotton or non-woven polypropylene

  • We recommend removable nose wires for everyone over the age of 8.

  • Elastic ear loops preferred. We suggest using silicone adjusters on your elastic ear loops. This makes your mask fit more people AND it makes it fit snugger making the mask fit better and have a better seal providing better protection. 

4. Care Corps Vegas (Vegas Maskateers) has requested 1000 Adult masks for homeless persons living in Las Vegas. 

  • 2 layer only

  • Larger sizes needed, they primarily distribute to Men

  • Removable nose wires needed unless you make the 3D mask

  • Adjustable ear loops strongly preffered, though regular elastic okay.

  • Fabric suggestions included Star Wars and Avengers, other Super Heroes.
