You can help us help the community!

We are partnering with Marquis Florals By Kim to make surgical masks. These masks will be used in conjunction with respirators so that the respirators will last longer.

Kim of Marquis Florals has assembled kits of pre-washed and pre-cut fabric to sew these masks. Kits are packaged in groups of 20. Each kit contains 40 pieces of fabric (front and back) and 40 pieces of elastic for the ear straps. Fabrics provided may vary.

If you are interested in helping sew these face masks, please send us an email at berninactr@aol.com.

Let us know:
  • How many kits you would like.
  • What is the best method to contact you
  • What is the best time to contact you
Updates will be provided on our website as more information is available.
