LEWISBURG, WV (WVNS) — The United Way of Greenbrier Valley announced several drop-off locations for those who want to donate masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The United Way and St. James’ Episcopal Church teamed up Senator Joe Manchin’s office to support MASKS 4 WV. It is a statewide initiative to get people to sew masks due to the shortage of personal protective equipment.
People who can sew are asked to volunteer to make masks. Those who cannot sew can donate clean and new 100 percent cotton fabric and elastic.
“We thank Charleston Area Medical Center for kicking off the effort and are pleased to help coordinate volunteerism in the Greenbrier Valley. Local community members, faith-based groups, and others who are working from home during this time are already getting busy sewing and sharing their talents,” said United Way Executive Director Erin Hurst.
Beginning Friday, March 26, 2020, the United Way of Greenbrier Valley will collect crafted masks and donated supplies in designated bins located in the following locations:
- St. James’ Episcopal Church: 468 Church St, Lewisburg, Box located in breezeway near office door M-F 9:30am – 3:30pm
