Mask Kits Available at the Greene County Extension

The Greene County Extension & Outreach is offering Mask Kits for community members to either keep for personal use or to donate. Greene County Extension’s Office Assistant, Cindy Adamson donated fabric and is preparing kits for anyone who would like them. We have two different patterns available and a list of where that specific pattern can be donated locally. “This is a way for Greene County Extension to show our support to our community during this difficult time,” said Kayla Willms, Greene County’s 4-H & Youth Coordinator.
 
If you would like to make your own mask stop by the Extension office between 9:00am – 11:00am Monday through Friday and pick up a kit. Each kit has directions and supplies to make one mask. A sewing machine will be required to assemble.
 
Don’t forget to record your donations! Iowa 4‑H program empowers young people to be well-informed citizens who are actively engaged in their communities and the world! Iowa 4-H is calling all 4-H members, leaders, alumni, judges, and friends to create face masks for their community, including friends, neighbors, hospitals, and care centers. Our original goal was to create 10,000 masks and as of April 23rd there are over 13,000 masks donated. Due to the successful first week of counting, Iowa 4-H has increased our goal to 25,000 masks state-wide.  To learn how to record your donations, please go to https://www.extension.iastate.edu/4h/iowa-4-h-creates-face-masks.
