Friends of the Elderly, Veterans and Disabled in Need of Masks

A note to our membership from Cheryl Anne Blood <>:
We make reusable masks and distribute them to subsidized residences of elderly, veterans and disabled individuals across Pennsylvania.  We are hoping you will join us in our efforts to provide the most vulnerable with at least one reusable mask that will protect them.  Some of these individuals either don't have masks or they are wearing disposable masks that are torn or dirty.  
Please contact her directly for information on where to send masks and what style she needs OR check back here for updates.
