The Piedmont Community Service Crew (PCSC) is hosting an activity open to all this weekend to refurbish N95 masks, a simple task that will help to make this very basic tool that is critical to the prevention of COVID spread. COVID transmission rates may be on the decline, but masks remain especially needed by the homeless, who are often not vaccinated. PCSC is working with It Takes a Village — a community of volunteers that delivers PPE to communities in need across the Bay Area.
Please sign up to come to one or more of our event shifts which will be this Saturday, March 5 between noon and 4:30 p.m. and Sunday March 6 between 10:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. PCSC members will explain and guide volunteers on the tasks and hope to create a festive/teamwork atmosphere with music. The event will be in the parking lot in front of the Dress Best For Less marking room at 799 Magnolia Ave. Drop-ins are welcome, but please register in advance if you can by completing our form: 5K Mask Project Registration Form
