BALDWYN, Miss. (WTVA) - A church is making sure those less fortunate are safe during this pandemic.
Members of The Orchard Northside are hosting a mask drive the whole month of December.
“There’s just a good opportunity in the holiday season to give,” Co-organizer Bryson Sheffield said.
Sheffield said members are teaming up with Mississippi United to end homelessness and to supply masks to those in need.
“They already have so much stacked against them. So, few resources if they were to get sick and get this illness; they’ll be at such a disadvantage.”
Members want to collect as many masks as possible this month, but what kind of masks are they looking for?
Sheffield said they aren’t collecting N95 masks because they want to save them for health professionals.
Members don’t want used masks either.
Sheffield said you can donate handmade or store-bought cloth masks.
“We have a lot of tutorials on our Facebook and stuff that we shared online, so you can go and look that up. And different videos on how to make them; you can make them yourself.”
If you would like to help, you can drop off your donations at the church.
