United Way of Greater Monroe County donated the funds for the Amory Pandemic Response Center to purchase $500 worth of cotton fabric earlier this month, towards our efforts to make cloth masks. We were able to buy 150 yards of fabric, and depending on the pattern used, sizes, seam allowances, & etc., one yard can produce up to 8 masks. So with this fantastic assistance, we've been able to provide 400 cloth masks to the hospital in Amory, along with smaller bundles for clinics, first responders, and long-term residence facilities, and we still have a bit of fabric to work through while we continue making masks. THANK YOU, United Way!
