Face Masks Donation to Local Hospital
The global COVID-19 pandemic has changed the lives of nearly every citizen. Many are out of work, fighting the illness, or ordered to stay home to protect their life and the lives of others. Healthcare workers are on the front lines fighting to keep the numbers low, which has led to an unfortunate shortage of medical face masks. Many local seamstresses have started sewing cloth masks to provide a barrier for healthcare workers. With the inability to volunteer in the hospitals, we decided to donate masks to local healthcare workers.
We wanted to find a way to contribute to a local business and a hospital that is near to our heart. The Cincinnati Veterans Affairs hospital provides high quality care to our mother and Executive Director, Julie Posey, as she battles a very rare autoimmune disorder. We enlisted the help of a local, professional seamstress, Kendall Owings, owner of KPO Designs. Without hesitation, she excitedly agreed to donate her time to sew 62 face masks. The staff at Cincinnati Veterans Affairs hospital were grateful for the donation and we are grateful to be able to provide a bit of help during this unprecedented time.
