    • A lot of the stores that give us gift cards and sponsorships could use masks to protect workers.
  • Donate of cotton clothes (at least 60% cotton) for mask making (bedsheet, comforter, curtains, clothes, etc.)

    • Deliver masks in ziploc bags with two masks per employee
    • 75 masks for each store
    • Distribute to the DOC NC team as well

Youth Lead Seminar Sessions

  • In lieu of school cancellation, it’s always good to keep learning. The seminar sessions will allow older members to teach younger members about an important skill they have mastered or a field they have a deeper understanding of. This will be done through daily 30 min zoom sessions starting on Monday, April 20th.
