Thank you- COVID 19 Mask Makers



April 17, 2020


Over the last month, as the pandemic of COVID 19 spread, there was a tremendous need for masks for healthcare workers.  Through the uncertainty of what was happening, we saw a greater collective pull out their sewing machines, call up their contacts and look to see what they could spare to donate to our community.


with the combined efforts of:


* Dimitra Tsatsos Cook

*Melissa Torrin

* Valerie McQuillan

*Eagle Hill school Head Master Peter McDonald

*Jenni Haley and Katelyn Mcvety of Valley Steel Stamp

*Umass face shields

*Deb Lafrance



There were over donated 350 masks to Rockridge Retirement Community.


Our staff cannot thank you enough for keeping us protected – we appreciate you!
