I am a one woman operation and have stopped production on my clothing line to make masks during the current COVID-19 pandemic. I have not received any monetary donations for the 1,000+ masks I have already donated. I am selling masks to the public so they can stay safe and using a portion of those sales to contribute even more masks to support as many requests I have received from local and national health care facilities.
In addition, I have been distributing free kits of precut masks and elastic, and loaning sewing machines to the local residents of my hometown Sausalito and the surrounding communities of Marin, that want to help sew and donate. They have personally been distributing masks locally to:
USCF Medical Center (San Francisco, CA)
San Francisco SF-Marin Food Bank (San Francisco, CA)
Summit Medical Center (Oakland, CA)
Oakland Memorial Hospital West (Oakland, CA)
Pembroke Pines (City of FL)
Sausalito Village (Sausalito, CA)
Floating Homes Society (Sausalito, CA)
CARSS (Call a Ride for Sausalito Seniors)
Sausalito Police Department (Sausalito, CA)
Local Sausalito Restaurants and Grocers (Sausalito, CA)
Taylors Free Medical Clinic (Taylors, SC)
I will post a final list of all organizations that have received donations of masks once i've gathered that data from myself and the people who have been sewing the free kits provided by me. At this moment, I believe my time is better spent getting the masks out to the public.
All cutting of the masks is done by us in my boutique/studio in downtown Sausalito.
Thank you for the support.
