[Phase I] Cloth masks made locally and imported from Taiwan
Washable cloth masks can be used in combination with surgical
masks to prolong their lifespan.

Volunteer

As of today, the task force has handmade and donated over 8000 fabric masks to local hospitals, nursing homes, police stations and many other essential workers. But the demand is increasing. So we’re looking for more volunteers to help us produce the supplies more efficiently.

Volunteers can all work on their own time and determine their work pace for the task they’re assigned to. There is no pressure on how many hours you need to commit and you can definitely continue your work-from-home lifestyle. You can either help cutting fabric to the desired dimensions so our sewing team can produce the supplies faster, contactlessly delivering materials between volunteers on the way of your grocery shopping, or reach out to local organizations to check in with their demands through email or phone call.

If you’re interested in joining us and helping essential workers get us through this difficult time, please register your interest in the form.

You can also find detailed instructions of each task force team on the form. We can’t wait to welcome you on board and make an impact together!
