Do Your Part
Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen businesses, organizations and individuals step forward with ideas to help others in need. Watching the Fort Wayne community boldly and generously offer help continues to inspires others each day, and there are plenty of opportunities for you to lend a hand.
For those with the skills and materials to help make fabric face masks, Volunteer Fort Wayne is offering a free pattern download. Just click on COVID-19 Response in the navigation bar for all necessary information. volunteerfortwayne.org
Kendallville Public Library employees have been producing a gadget that secures facemask elastics behind the wearer’s head, rather than behind the ears, making for a more comfortable fit. If you have a 3D printer, you an help! Contact the Kendallville Public Library at info@kendallville library.org or via direct message on Facebook.
