Broad Street's Face Mask Project

Help us respond to the need!

Broad Street United Methodist Church’s Face Mask Project:

40 masks so far!

Our hospitals and medical centers desperately need face masks.

We’re partnering with the Chenango County Department of Health to make a difference! Sewers from Broad Street are working together -from home- to sew face masks for patients in our local hospitals. Can’t sew? No problem. Help us gather supplies or cut fabric!

Join Broad Street United Methodist Church’s Face Mask Project today! Together, we can make a huge impact on our community!

How to help:

Supplies needed:

  • Cotton fabric
  • Iron-on interfacing or dry wipes
  • Elastic or seam binding
  • Metal for nose piece (suggested: twist ties)

If you have any of these supplies and can’t sew, please see *Drop off/Pick up:

Can’t sew? Cut!

Sewers can sew more quickly if they don’t have to cut the fabric first. Cut fabric in these sizes:

  • Adults: 9″ x 7.5″
  • Children: 7.5″ x 5″
  • Infants: 5″ x 5″

How to make:

Watch this instructional video for an idea of how to sew!

Masks for health care workers must include a filter. Recommended filter material is dry wipes or iron-on interfacing. Masks without a filter are fine, but will be used only for patients.
