When the COVID-19 pandemic began, our Orange County 4-H Team quickly began working on a face covering community service initiative. 4-Hers and now other volunteers are continuing to sew face coverings all to be donated to essential workers, volunteers and generally anyone in need of them.
Below is our face covering disclaimer as well as a link to the Centers for Disease Control’s website page detailing face coverings and how to make them on your own.

If you are interested in volunteering to sew face coverings or if you would like to request a face covering(s) donation, please send an email to DeAnna Sardella-Matthews, 4-H Resource Educator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
