News Release
Help no longer needed for sewing masks - 03/27/20

UPDATE 3/27/2020: All of the mask-making kits were distributed on Thursday, March 26 due to the incredible response by the community. Because of that, we have canceled the previously scheduled distribution times today in Salem and Dallas.

Salem Health is grateful for the public’s enthusiasm and support. At this time, we have no plans to ask for more help making masks. We will keep you updated should the situation change in the future.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Salem Health distributed kits Thursday, March 26 to make masks for our nurses and other care providers. This week, employees created and bagged hundreds of the mask-making kits – enough to produce nearly 10,000 masks. The kits include surgical paper fabric, instructions and a bag for the finished product.

Those interested in helping will need a sewing machine; white thread; scissors or a rotary cutter; and a yardstick, straight edge or cutting mat. (Volunteers should NOT use their own fabric – only the material provided.)

Guidelines

  1. Continue social distancing. Please do not host mask-making parties with friends/neighbors or ask to pick up kits to take to someone else.
  2. Return completed masks to a drop-off location with a few days.
