thank you to our group of mask makers!

       Early in March it became clear that with the current Covid-19 pandemic masks were going to be an important comodity. Well, right here at Timber Greens, people heard the call and answered! Following is from an interview with Pat Cassidy with "the rest of the story."
HOW IT ALL BEGAN...
Three weeks ago Pat had a tearful phone conversation from a colleague in Nashville, TN. They had just survived destruction from a tornado and now Covid 19 hit! This hospital treats some of the poorest, homeless residents and supplies are often short. Being low on N95 masks, they were fashioning donated scarves into masks that they could use for other cases.

Talking with people in Timber Greens, donations of fabric, old sheets, and ribbon started to appear. Many people came forward saying "I can help". Some can sew; others cut fabric; some iron; and others help deliver. And so it began! Today there are 5 sewers, 6 fabric cutters, 4 ironers and 3 deliverers…and the number grows!

WHAT HAVE THEY ACCOMPLISHED?
To date they have donated 50+ masks to Nashville General, 20+ to a resident’s daughter-in-law who is a pediatric oncology nurse in Ohio, 54 masks were sent to the Covid 19 unit at the North Port, VA Center in Northport, NY, 30+ to a resident’s church outreach program serving the homeless in New Port Richey, plus our staff in the 19th Hole and TG office staff.
