Oasis Academy, in conjunction with Friends of Oasis Academy, is working to put together kits and supplies to make PPE equipment for healthcare workers and hospital staff; specifically, face masks and hospital gowns. Hospital employees and health care providers have indicated to us that there is a huge need for these items.
Friends of Oasis Academy hired Bits and Pieces to make 650 masks. In addition, volunteers are putting together kits to make approximately 600 additional masks. Once those kits are assembled they will put a call out to the seamstresses of the community to sew the masks. They are also collecting unwanted sheets (fitted and flat) at the school, which will be used by volunteers to sew gowns. Donations can be left at the school located at 920 W. Williams, Avenue.
Holiday Inn made a large donations of linens as did individual families.
We are ready to have people pick up the linen and start sewing gowns. If you are able to sew gowns please email [email protected],org for instructions.
If you want to help they ask that you check their Facebook page daily and/or the website justserve.org. You do NOT have to have a FB account to view the public page, located here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/OAfallon/posts/?ref=page_internal
