Volunteers sew masks to help meet demand in our area

Posted: Updated:

A few volunteers in Lubbock are contributing to meet the demand of low medical supplies by sewing masks.

Many healthcare facilities across the country are seeing shortages in different medical supplies like gloves, gowns and face masks due to panic buying in preparation of warding off COVID-19.

Nicole Pennington, her daughter Eliza Pennington, and two foreign exchange students the family is hosting, Beatrice Terto and Benedetta Frosini are hand-crafting masks to help out with the shortage. They say it takes a whole community to combat the spread of COVID-19.

"Even if people have a lot of things to do in their lives," Benedetta Frosni said.  "I'm sure they can find some time to help the community because it's really important right now."

"We have time, we should stay at home," Beatrice Terto said. "So just find some fabric and hopefully you can sew."

"Because I really wanted to help the community," Eliza Pennington said "So I just did my best to cut elastic."

They say that this is the least they can do for people like first responders, doctors and nurses who do a lot for Lubbock.
