CHICO, Calif. – Enloe Medical Center is reaching out to the community for more face masks as they begin to resume some elective surgeries and expand visiting hours.

Officials with Enloe said 200 volunteers helped sew and donate 10,000 face masks since March to protect against coronavirus. Now, it needs more cloth masks as Enloe expands some services.

“We are grateful and appreciative to our volunteers for their commitment to supporting health and safety through their craft and generosity,” said Roseanna Galindo, director of Enloe Volunteer Services. “As the dynamic changes, we hope to increase the number of donations to 500 per week to help enable everyone entering our facilities to wear a mask.”

Enloe also hopes to receive elastic and 100% cotton fabric to create sewing kits for those who can sew but lack materials. Enloe Volunteer Services has had a supply of these materials, but are nearly out. They're also hoping for more donations of ear savers and personal protective equipment like N-95 masks.

Galindo said their goal is so everyone entering the facility can wear a face mask. Click Here to participate in this campaign.
