Masks 4 SLVMasks4SLV: We need volunteers and donations!

Organized by Lorraine Palmer and Tina Marie To from Boulder Creek, Masks4SLV is a project to make masks and provide them to first responders, volunteer organizations, businesses, school personnel, and residents of the San Lorenzo Valley.

The Valley Women’s Club is proud to sponsor Masks4SLV to help curb the spread of COVID-19 in the San Lorenzo Valley.

You can be a part of this community endeavor by volunteering to make masks, donating materials or equipment, or providing financial support. Since April 4th, thanks to Masks4SLV, hundreds of homemade masks have landed on the faces of people working at our local businesses and non-profit organizations, including Liberty Bank, Valley Churches United, and other faces in need.
