Homemade Community Masks: Make & Wear or Make & Donate
We appreciate the community’s interest in making and donating cloth masks for use by community members. Foundation Health Partners and the Fairbanks Area Community Emergency Response Team are partnering to provide education, collection, sanitation, and distribution of donated hand-sewn fabric masks. Please submit a VOLUNTEER FORM.
We have provided instructions and recommended videos for those who wish to make-your-own or make-to-donate. Make-to-donate masks will be collected, sanitized and distributed by the Fairbanks Area Community Emergency Response Team.
What does MASK UP mean?
The most important part of MASKING UP is covering your nose and mouth when in public. You don't need medical masks or to be an expert seamstress to start masking up today.
