Thank you!

During these unprecedented times, we have been so appreciative of the generosity within our community to support the frontline staff at EvergreenHealth. By providing nourishment during the COVID-19 outbreak, our staff felt the strength and encouragement from the community to deliver their best care against an unexpected pandemic.

At this time we are taking a pause on accepting and organizing meal donations for the hospital. Over the last two months we’ve been humbled by the outpouring of support from local restaurants and community members who’ve provided incredible meals to both day and night shift staff almost every day since COVID-19 first appeared at EvergreenHealth.

We feel right now that it is time to take a step back and encourage our partners to reach out to other essential community organizations to provide meals to support frontline staff, the children of essential workers, and families in need of meal assistance.

A special ‘Thank You’ to restaurants, donors and organizations!

Sewing Masks

We have a wonderful team of seamstresses who will meet the current need of surgical/procedural masks, made from sterile wrap. We thank them for their generosity of time and talent.

Should we need additional volunteers for our Sewing Bee we will invite further participation.

Common Questions:

Q. What type of fabric is used to sew a surgical/procedural mask?
Surgical masks are made from sterile wrap which is a sterile plastic fabric made from polypropylene. The sewing kits we will provide will include the appropriate quantity of surgical blue wrap required to make one (1) mask.

Due to sterilization factors, we cannot accept fabric masks that are not made from sterile wrap.

Q. Who will use these surgical/procedural masks?
These masks are crucial to our supply needs and will be used by a variety of people including:

  • Pharmacy technicians
  • EvergreenHealth employees who are not in direct COVID-19 patient care; these include staff that are screening patients and visitors, food service workers, etc.
  • Patients who may be coming to campus for an appointment and are experiencing any illness symptoms (fever, cough, runny nose, etc.)

Q. What is included in a sewing kit?
Each sewing kit will create one (1) surgical/procedural mask made from sterile wrap. All materials include sterile wrap, ear loops and instructions will be included in the kit. The only items each seamstress will need is cotton thread (of the color of your choosing!) and a sewing machine.

Once we receive the completed masks back at EvergreenHealth, we will re-sterilize them and distribute for immediate use!

Q. Do I need a sewing machine to sew a mask?
Yes, these kits are designed for sewing machine use.

Q. How can I request a sewing kit?
We are so thankful for the volunteers that have offered their seamstress skills and support to sew surgical/procedural masks. Our group of volunteers will meet the current need of surgical/procedural masks, made from sterile wrap.

Should we need additional volunteers for our Sewing Bee we will invite further participation.
