Buy a face mask, help feed the hungry!
We are selling hand-made face masks to raise money for area food banks. As of January 31 we have raised over $26,000, which is being distributed to food banks and other organizations that feed the hungry in Cheshire and neighboring towns, including Waterbury, Hamden, Wallingford, Meriden, and Southington.

If you would like to place an order, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the pattern number(s) and quantity you would like. Curbside pickup is available in Cheshire, or if you would prefer we can mail your masks to you for $10.
Masks are also available at four locations in Cheshire -- Cheshire Nursery, Main Street Café, Olive and Henry Fine Foods and Premier Wine and Spirits -- and at Tops Market in Southington. We are grateful to these businesses for supporting this initiative, and encourage you to support them. We are also grateful to the First Congregational Church for allowing us to sell face masks on the Green and to Norton Brothers Fruit Farms for selling masks until they closed for the season.
Thank you for helping to feed the hungry!!
From our customers...
"I love mine! These are so well made! Plus they have two elastics that go around your head not just your ears! Also has a small metal piece that bends around the nose. I bought other masks on eBay and Esty but these are so much better! Buy them, you won't regret it." -Christina
"At 95 years old, I never had to wear masks until this year with COVID. Your masks are the most comfortable ones for me! Thank you." -Betty

All of our high-quality masks are handmade by Suburban Garden Club members. Special features include:
100% cotton fabric, with a pocket where a coffee filter, paper towel, or other material can be inserted to provide additional protection.
The same type of metal nose strip used in surgical masks to provide a snug fit and help prevent glasses from fogging
Super-soft elastic that goes behind the head rather than around the ears. In
addition to eliminating ear irritation, this allows the mask to be worn around the
neck when not in use and helps prevent it from being dropped or lost (especially
important for kids!). If desired, masks can easily be converted to the ear loop
style; instructions are included with each mask.
