American Legion Posts 138 and 976 with VFW Post 2497 in Smethport and Crosby along with the Sons of the Legion, American Legion Riders, and their Auxiliaries have joined in a project to create and deliver masks to those in need, so they meet the State guidelines requiring all persons to wear a mask in public spaces. These project masks are not N95 compliant, and when worn along with social distancing will help protect others you come in contact with.
The plan is to determine who is in need of a mask. After volunteers have created the masks, members of the Post, Sons of the Legion, and American Legion Riders will deliver them. Because of the economic struggles caused by this pandemic, there will be no charge for the mask. However, we do need volunteers to cut out and sew the masks. Donations will be accepted to offset the cost of materials but are not expected.
If you are interested in volunteering and using your sewing skills to make masks, please send an email to [email protected]. Put VOLUNTEER in the subject line. Include your name, address, and phone number in your message. We will contact you and arrange to deliver the materials needed to make the mask and then pick them up when completed.
Any person in need of a mask should send an email to [email protected] and put NEED MASK in the subject line. Please put your name, address and phone number in your message. We will contact you to arrange delivery.
Any other Legion or VFW Post in the county that is interested in joining in this effort should contact Bart Barton, Adjutant, Post 138.
