Hands sewing face masks

Loyola Medicine Mask Donation Drive

April 28, 2020

Volunteers needed!

To help protect our patients, team members and community, we are asking for your help creating homemade cloth masks. Our goal is to reach 10,000 masks for Loyola Medicine over the next few weeks. 

Based on CDC guidelines, we are requiring all mask donations to feature a double layer of unused machine-washable cotton. Further guidelines and step-by-step mask tutorials are available from the CDC. The link provides instructions on do-it-yourself tutorials, including videos at the very bottom.

To Donate Hand-sewn Masks:

Please email Wil Gonzalez and arrangements will be made to pick up your donation from your vehicle outside the pre-determined location(s) between the hours of 8 am – 4 pm. Donations are being accepted for Loyola University Medical Center; Gottlieb Memorial Hospital, MacNeal Hospital.
