St Margaret's Hospital is trying to combat the short supply of face masks by making some themselves.
They reached out to a local shop, Quilting in the Valley in La Salle, IL and requested she hand out supplies to make masks. The supplies were purchased by St. Margaret's Hospital and a bag was prepared with instructions and all materials needed to make a face mask.
An employee of St. Margaret's reached out to her mother's Quilting Group in Tonica, IL to ask if they could help. She jumped at the opportunity to help and the entire group rallied to make face masks for St. Margaret's Hospital.
