Seamstresses pitch in for public safety
Hutterites join effort to make masks
April 2, 2020
RITZVILLE - Area seamstresses have been sewing fast and furiously to get cloth masks donated to area hospitals, medical facilities, senior centers and other organizations.
Their work has also been provided to the Adams County Sheriff's Office, gas stations, U.S. Postal Service and grocery stores for use during the coronavirus pandemic.
Dorcey Hunt, an East Adams Rural Healthcare physical therapist, said she saw a Facebook post by Odessa's Kelsey Scrupps asking for help collecting masks made by volunteers, and dove right in.
She started sewing, too, with donations of fabric and elastic.
