Creating masks for seniors: Sew to Save

A local nursing home has some new masks and plenty of appreciation thanks to the effort of volunteers.

The volunteer organization Sew to Save made and delivered 900 cloth masks to Cedar Sinai Park, an assisted living home in Beaverton.

The masks were given to people living there and to staff members.

“We’re thrilled to provide PPE, beautiful PPE as I can see, artistic PPE to our residents and staff. It is a blessing of monumental proportions. We are so thankful to Sew to Save,” said Kimberly Fuson, CEO of Cedar Sinai Park.

Sew to Save was founded in April and quickly amassed more than 2,500 masks to donate. The efforts are continuing with volunteers sewing and delivering masks to those in the healthcare community.

“It makes me feel purposeful right now. I think it is one of those things we all feel a little helpless and what we can do to make a difference,” said Lisa Schneiderman, Sew to Save founder.

Sew to Save is looking for more people to help support their cause. Information is available at sewtosave.org.

Cedar Sinai Park is also accepting donations, including of personal protective equipment.
