Project Scrubs and Masks

Project Scrubs and Masks began when the Foundation learned there is a need among our front-line healthcare workers for hospital scrubs and we later turned our attention to masks.  We reached out to our amazing community and the response has been stunning. So many talented sewers, including our VRH Auxiliary members and local businesses like Michelin and Avonport Discount Fabrics, asked how they could help meet this challenge. Thank you everyone who helped with this project…see our list of sewers at the bottom of this page.

ARE YOU A COMMUNITY/HEALTH GROUP WITH A NEED FOR NON-MEDICAL MASKS? Our masks are washable, have a pocket for a filter, and are made with care by community sewers using high quality quilting cotton fabric. Please fill in the form below to request masks for your community/health group:

Request non-medical masks (community/health groups)

Now that the Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Theresa Tam, has told us that having all of us wear non-medical face masks can help to reduce the transmission of Covid-19, we want to share with you the instructions we have created to make a mask. The instructions can be modified to make however many masks you like using your own materials. Please use and share this information broadly.  Let’s help each other so that every person in our community has a mask available to wear when they are doing essential errands.  If you make a mask for a friend, family member or neighbour please ensure that they wash the mask before putting it on.

The Foundation will continue to monitor the personal protective equipment needs of the front-line workers in our community and we will keep connecting with you to help us provide whatever support we can to meet those needs. Thank you everyone!
