Could you use free cloth masks for your employees, courtesy of terrific County volunteers?

Lori Erickson, who serves as logistics officer for the Cook County Emergency Operations Center, sends this message:

"The outpouring of donations from the community has been incredible. The EOC has received over 1500 cloth face coverings for the medical and essential workers.

I’d like to keep up the momentum and ask that donors continue to create these items. If more donations are received than needed for the medical community, would the local business like the surplus cloth face coverings for their employees?

Mind you, these cloth face coverings would be just for the employees and not for customers."

If you would like to request volunteer-made face masks for your employees, please send an email to [email protected]. Please include your email address, a telephone number and the number of masks you need. Please estimate conservatively so the masks can get to as many employers as possible.
