Wesley Woods Residents Sew Masks for Children of Murphy-Harpst


After an inspiring example of "leaning into the connection," Murphy-Harspt sent a big thank you to Wesley Woods this month!

"As we learn more about the COVID-19 virus, it is clear that wearing cloth face masks is an easy way to minimize community spread," shared Murphy-Harpst in their latest newsletter. "We realized that we needed many more masks for our 75 residents and 150+ staff on a long-term basis."

They saw that Wesley Woods residents were making cloth masks, and, in the spirit of Connectionalism, reached out to see if they could help.

Within two days of the request, the "Imperfect Stitchers" sewing group from Wesley Woods provided 250 hand-sewn face masks for the kids of Murphy-Harpst! The Imperfect Stitchers gave us enough masks to give every resident 3 masks, with a few to spare! 

"Our kids are so grateful for the love and care that went into these masks," shared Murphy-Harpst. "One resident said 'I feel like this mask was made just for me by a grandma who loves me!'"
