Supply Drive – Volunteers Making Masks

SUPPLY DRIVE 

Our volunteers are looking for supplies to make masks. Elastic material to go around the ears or ponytail holders work too!
New Cotton Fabric, Quilting Fabric or Bandannas can be used to make the mask front.

If you have questions or would like to donate supplies please contact
Tyler VanBuren at tvanburen@vcifl.org or call her at (630) 335-3084.
