While staying at home and physical distancing, spend your time doing something productive: making face masks for those in need.
With Governor Jay Inslee’s face covering directive, many nursing homes, homelessness service organizations, food banks, grocery stores, and restaurants around Washington are currently in need of non-medical face masks.
If you’re interested in helping these groups to get coverings, you can donate the masks easily thanks to the Washington Mask Challenge: a collaboration between United Ways of the Pacific Northwest, Serve WashingtonProvidence Healthcare, and Lieutenant Governor Cyrus Habib.

Those interested in donating masks must first make at least 10. They can then fill out this form so that the office can track mask donations and reply with instructions for sending the masks to an organization in need.
If you’re an organization in need of masks, you can request homemade masks through the lieutenant governor’s office.
