Greetings in the name of our Lord,
It is now becoming apparent that face masks may well be an important way, along with social distancing, that we overcome this horrific pandemic.
Right now, N95 masks are being deployed to hospitals and medical facilities as they should be. But this means most folks have no face mask option. What I would like to do is be able to hand out masks to folks who come to West Houston Assistance Ministries for food. We are serving thousands of folks a week, so clearly this is a huge undertaking.
I am wondering if you would be interested in making some masks to hand out?
Would you also consider sharing this request with your network? Perhaps there are other folks who would be willing to help. To share, click on the links to the left and above. Or cut and paste this and text, email it etc.. https://revmarkbrown.com/2020/04/03/a-special-request-(pls-share!)/(opens in a new tab)
The best approach is to have the masks mailed to WHAM, at 10501 Meadowglen Lane, Houston, TX 77042. If dropping them off is easier, that can be arranged as well. Simply text me at 832 341 2440
