A Scout is Helpful

With the shortage of Personal Protective Equipment in the healthcare industry right now we have found that one way Scouts can help is by sewing and donating face masks. Though these masks may not be up to the N95 standard they can be helpful to other areas of hospitals, nursing homes, home health care, and other areas.

If you would like to request Face Masks for your organization, please fill out the form here.

Below please find links to resources and information on how you can make and donate masks to your community, as well as a link to report your service hours for your efforts. 

Most Versatile Face Mask:

At this time the most versatile face mask that includes the metal nose piece, adjustable elastic and a space for a filter insert can be found here. This is not necessarily the easiest mask to make but it seems to be the most versatile.  

Materials needed for the above-mentioned face mask are:

  • Elastic
  • Material
  • Thread
  • Metal for nose piece = pipe cleaner, grocery style wire ties, jewelry making wire, copper wire, etc.  

Other mask patterns:
