JFS started this initiative to proudly support their client, Abdulkader Hayani, and a group of volunteers in sewing fashionable, double-layer masks. JFS and their synagogue partners resettled Abdulkader, his family and 7 other Syrian families just 3 years ago. Abdulkader Hayani, a tailor by trade, has made over 2.000 masks to keep our community safe! Read more about this initiative here.
JFS is asking for a donation of $18 for each mask and will donate a second mask for each order received.
Please join our efforts by volunteering to either sew (instructions provided), package, or deliver materials to sewers and/or deliver masks to JFW who will then distribute them.
If interested in sewing, you only need a sewing machine* and pins – fabric and elastic will be provided thanks to a donation to the JFSW.
*Note: If you do not have a sewing machine, please still share your interest, as there is a possibility of renting machines.
Please email Erin Moseley if interested in joining our efforts. Include how to best reach you as well as how you want to contribute.
