During the COVID-19 outbreak, LHH&H is in need of at least 100 face masks for use by our patients. (This will offer some protection for our workers who are still caring for clients amid social distancing and the Center for Disease Control has stated that fabric masks are a crisis response option when other supplies have been exhausted.
If you'd like to join the national movement of generous volunteers who have started to sew masks, please follow the general guidance below and visit links to instructions from Deaconess Health System.
Thank you for donating your time and talent to help Lamoille Home Health and Hospice. We appreciate your generosity.
