Calling all seamstresses:LSS needs your talents
If you have sewing skills, your talents are needed.
Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota is inviting Minnesotans to sew protective face masks to protect against sneezes and coughs to help safeguard people supported by the organization, employees and volunteers.
"We are so grateful for the masks we have received from the community," said Julie Wright, director of Church Partnerships and Volunteer Services. "Many more are still needed."
Wright said that the organization is seeking several thousand protective masks. As an essential provider, Lutheran Social Service supports one in 65 Minnesotans, including people with disabilities, youth experiencing homelessness, older Minnesotans, families experiencing job loss and many others with critical needs.
