Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk has been working towards helping the local medical community by donating fabric to help create masks.
Suffolk ReStore, Habitat’s sales center which carries a selection of gently used building supplies and home furnishings, donated approximately 40 yards of fabric to be used to make homemade cloth masks for healthcare workers and staff. The fabric was previously donated to ReStore by Maharam, a textile company in Yaphank.
In partnership with the organization Suffolk County Creators of COVID-19 Medical Supplies, the fabric will be distributed to their more than 600 volunteers across the island to sew masks and head wraps for medical personnel.
