SEWING FOR GOOD.

MAKING MASKS TO PROTECT OUR HEALTHCARE WORKERS AND COMMUNITY DURING THE
COVID-19 HEALTH CRISIS

EVERY MASK CAN SAVE A LIFE.

STITCH BRIGADE'S MISSION

Stitch Brigade was formed to mobilize creative community members to use their talents to serve the needs of the local community in Western PA and Eastern OH. 

Increasingly, nursing homes, healthcare facilities, and hospitals have expressed that they are in dire need of masks in order to protect people during the COVID-19 healthcare crisis. We are mobilizing our community to come together to answer their call and to save lives.

 

So, please get involved any way that you can. There are so many ways that you can be involved!

"ALONE, WE CAN DO SO LITTLE;
TOGETHER, WE CAN DO SO MUCH."

WE DO NOT SELL MASKS.
