Urgent invitation to join our CCS SEWING BEE and help make 10,000 MASKS!

Categories: News, Volunteer Opportunities

WESTERN WASHINGTON – Little known fact that the Old English meaning of BEE is “a prayer or a favor!” A SEWING BEE refers to “neighbors joining to work on a single activity to help a neighbor in need!”

Wow! This is your chance to join our CCS SEWING BEE to help make 10,000 masks for the safety of CCS/CHS front line staff who are working around the clock to provide essential services to our vulnerable neighbors in need.

It’s easy and fun…follow the links for sewing instructions, watch a video tutorial (below) and find your nearest CCS location where you can drop off or mail your mask donation.


Share this invite with your Facebook friends to help meet our goal of 10,000 masks. If you’re not able to sew, we invite you to go online at ccsww.org, COVID-19 Response, and donate to the Emergency Fund.

UPDATE: With elastic hard to come by, here is a hot tip from a blogger: cut knit material, like old t-shirts, into strips of 1” x 18” – no need to hem. When you yank on them, they naturally curl into a tube. There is even a video: https://www.madeeveryday.com/fabric-face-mask-free-pattern/
