Many kind members of our community have contacted us asking how they can help Blount Memorial physicians and staff in the fight against COVID-19.
Here’s How You Can Help:
1. Making Cloth Masks
Guidelines for Homemade Masks:
- Material – 100 percent cotton, double-sewn with stabilizer; also needs a metal piece at bridge of the nose measuring roughly 4”; no restrictions on colors, patterns, etc. of cotton fabric
- Size – Measures about 8” wide and 4” tall, with straps being 16-18” at each of the four corners (straps preferred over elastic loops for comfort/durability)
2. Donation of Supplies
Blount Memorial also is asking local businesses and individuals if they have extra supplies, that they consider donating them to the hospital.
Items Most Needed:
- Masks of any kind
- Sani-Wipes (wipes used to clean down surfaces often found in schools, daycares and gyms)
