Project Provide: Masks for Seniors

The Urbandale Senior Recreation Center is coordinating this effort to get homemade masks into the hands of all of our members who need them. The CDC is now recommending that people wear a face covering when out in public. All supplies are purchased locally when possible and the project is adhering to all safety and social distancing guidelines.

Sewing Masks

If you are able to sew, and would like to help make masks, click here sign up. Once your request is received, staff will reach out to you to coordinate pick-up of supplies if necessary. Completed masks can be dropped in the drop slot at the USRC building. Here is a link to our instructions and pattern. We will gladly accept different styles of masks if you have a pattern you are more comfortable making.

Financial Contributions

If you would like to help support this project, click here to make a donation. Every $5 donation provides five face masks made by and for local seniors to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

Request A Mask

If you would like to receive a mask, please click here to fill out our request form. It is our intention to fulfill the needs of seniors first, and if supply allows we will makes masks available to others in our community.

Note: These masks are not intended for use as professional-grade personal protective equipment. The CDC does not recommend cloth face coverings for children younger than 2 years of age, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the cover without assistance.
