  • june challenge: 750 masks

    ALIVE! one of our key partners in mission, is experiencing an acute shortage of

    cloth face masks to accompany food and household items distribution. We are challenging FUMC to sew or acquire 750 face masks during the month of June. These can be any style, But must be 100%  

    cotton, and can be either hand-made or purchased*.  Click Here for More Details.

    Once you have masks ready to go they can be delivered to FUMC Mondays from 6-8pm and Wednesdays from 4-6pm. Once we have the 750 we will deliver them to ALIVE! (they would prefer receiving all at one time). Thanks for considering this very important opportunity to make a difference in  our community. If you need more details contact Anne Wilson  wilsanne@gmail.com or 703-963-0834. Thank you. 

    We encourage all to avoid purchasing face   masks intended for frontline health workers who still need those.
