Ways to Help during the Coronavirus Outbreak: Sew a Mask

The Civic and Community Engagement Office is providing information about ways faculty, staff, and students can be active citizens and support our community during the coronavirus outbreak.

The Erie County Medical Center and many other hospitals in the Buffalo area are experiencing a shortage of N95 masks. Consequently, caregivers on the front lines are at great risk of being directly exposed.

If you have a sewing machine, materials, and some time, please consider making reusable masks to donate. Check out this demonstration on YouTube. A network of volunteers is also being organized on a Facebook group called #BuffaloResilence.
