“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” – Theodore Roosevelt
Mr. Rogers’ wise words remind us to, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
Members of the Quilt Guild are among those in the Buffalo Niagara region who have risen up to help. When made aware of the need, the Quilt Guild immediately mobilized an effort to supplement the supply of masks available for local healthcare workers.
The Quilt Guild has facilitated the creation and donation of fabric masks to Roswell Park, Millard Fillmore Suburban, Niagara Hospice, Newfane ReHab, Eastern Niagara Hospital, Buffalo Medical Group, DePaul, Seneca Street Community Development Corp., Buffalo Resilience, a Rochester area nursing home, and Schofield nursing facility. Their efforts have thus far produced nearly 1,000 masks, which have been donated to a variety of agencies in need.
We thank them for dedicating their time and skills to helping the brave healthcare workers who care for our community.
