Ways To Help During COVID-19
A wonderful idea was created by Bethany Fulton, a nurse at the Woodstock General Hospital, and the Alzheimer Society of Oxford would like to encourage sewers to get involved in helping front-line healthcare workers. Totes for Scrubs will allow front-line healthcare workers to more safely carry their uniforms home and launder during this pandemic.
You can find the instructions on how to make your tote here.
In an effort to get the totes to the facilities in Oxford County as quickly as possible, we are making this request while working on a directory of facilities wanting the totes and instructions of where sewers can drop off the completed totes at the facilities in their community.
If you are interested in sewing totes, please send an email to [email protected] including your name, email address, what town or city you live in Oxford County and we will be in contact to let you know which facility(ies) need totes and any specific instructions on where and when to drop them off.
The Alzheimer Society will not be accepting totes at our office as we are closed and not able at this time to distribute the totes.
The Alzheimer Society of Oxford will be evaluating our ability to take on other projects to provide personal protective equipment to front-line healthcare staff and will post any other projects on this page of our website. Stay tuned.
Thank you so much for choosing to respond to the needs of our healthcare workers during COVID-19.
Thank you for choosing to do something very positive during this very challenging time.
