Buy a face mask, help feed the hungry!

We are selling hand-made face masks to raise money for area food banks. As of mid-October, we've raised over $18,000, 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. 

 

These 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 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.

If you would like to place an order, please email sdillman@snet.net  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 $6.

Masks are also available at three locations in Cheshire:  Cheshire Nursery, Main Street Café, Olive and Henry Fine Foods and Premier Wine and Spirits.  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 facemasks on the Green.

Thank you for helping feed the hungry!!
