Over 255 Face Masks delivered to Whatcom County Care Centers

Masks made for Whatcom County Care Centers
On April 2, Governor Inslee made a plea to manufacturing to come up with ways to help fill the supply of items for the care and protection of the residents of Washington as well as the USA. I thought, he must not know about all the women in Washington sewing and donating face masks to any and every one who needs them. So, I sent him an email, called his office and sent him a face mask for his protection.

April 2, 2020

Dear Governor Inslee,

The women of Washington state are already at work. Hundreds of women here in Washington have been making face masks and donating them to hospitals, care centers, for their families and friends etc. for over two weeks.

Here in Bellingham, many of the members of Assistance League Bellingham have sewn, sterilized and delivered masks to 5 of our Care Centers and continue to work to help our community.

Thank you for all your hard work, we know this is not easy and we want you to be safe and healthy. Please accept this mask for your personal protection.

All of us in Bellingham Assistance League

Our Care Center Support Program chair, Joanie Martin, reports that, “A grand total of 255 face masks for Whatcom County Care Centers were made by dedicated, kind and crafty women. So thankful and proud of their accomplishments.”
