UMaine Extension homemakers group makes masks for health care providers

University of Maine Cooperative Extension Caribou Homemakers recently made and donated 110 fabric face masks to area hospitals and nursing homes in central Aroostook County. 

UMaine Extension Homemakers is a volunteer group that develops leadership skills, supports community causes, and promotes Extension’s educational programs in nine Maine counties. Several locations with active Homemaker groups are accepting donations of fabric face masks in support of Sewing Masks for Maine, a statewide volunteer effort to provide homemade face masks for health care providers.

More information and details on drop-off locations are available on the project webpage, or by contacting Lisa Fishman, 207.316.8310;
