Local residents are stepping up in huge ways to help out anyway they can during the COVID-19 pandemic.
OXFORD COUNTY - Local residents are stepping up in huge ways to help out anyway they can during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Earlier this week we told you about Naseeb Singh Santohay and his family who are hand making masks for front line workers.
Country Patchworks is making machine washable totes, that are an easy/safe way for staff to bring home scrubs to be laundered.
We have heard from several others who are doing the same. Jen Phillips from Ingersoll has been making the masks at home and donating them to local hospitals. She is also volunteering to help make the totes.
Twitter user Jilly is doing the same. We also have heard numerous stories of tattoo artists and large companies donating supplies.
Peter Chubb lives in Woodstock and has been using his 3D printer to make masks for the Woodstock Hospital. He has set a goal of making 50.
Patricia Riach in Woodstock is making homemade masks as well and leaving them on her porch with a sign that reads Free Masks.
If you know anyone in Oxford County making a difference, give the Heart FM newsroom a call at 519-537-8040 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
