Our friends at Cole-Tac have recently switched their operations to making gowns and face masks to help with the PPE shortage due to COVID-19. Although they have an abundance of supplies and the ability to cut designs, their bottleneck is sewing the face masks. They currently have identified a need of over 5000 masks.If you own a sewing machine you can help! Cole-tac is bundling material in lots to produce 25 masks. The material is cut and only needs the final assembly.
They have also streamlined the sewing so it only takes around 5 minutes to produce a mask. Check out their step by step video here.
If you’d like to help out please email Dustin at email@example.com to coordinate picking up materials at their Newport facility.
Thanks, Be well & Keep on Makin
