CHICO, Calif. - Mask makers are getting creative during the stay-at-home order in Chico.
The Center for Spiritual Living held a drive-thru to sell handmade face masks on Sunday.
Julie Fisher is the hands behind making the “Made with Love face mask."
Fisher said The Center for Spiritual Living has a way of giving back and what better way to give back than on Mother’s Day.
“My mother was a quilter and she passed away several years ago and I have a garage full of fabric, beautiful fabric, and I knew that this is what she would want it to be used for,” President at the Center for Spiritual Living, Amy Roberts said.
Roberts said each mask was sold at $5 apiece and all the proceedings will be donated to the center.
The center has 150 members that are no longer able to get together on Sundays. Roberts hopes this will be a way to help their members get out in public safely.
Fisher tells Action News Now that the home-made “Made with love face mask” is reusable and recyclable.
“The reason they’re reversible is that they’re 100% cotton and machine washable,” Fisher said. “If you make them reversible then you’ll know which side you’re wearing near your mouth because they don’t have the filter that is just plain white.”
Fisher said she only brought 45 masks to sell on Sunday but they sold 75 masks in total.
The group will be selling the face masks by drive-thru Saturday, May 16, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
If you can’t afford a mask, Roberts said to contact The Center for Spiritual Living and they will assist in getting you a mask. Click here for details on the coming up face mask drive-thru located at 14 Hillary Lane in Chico.
