We're keeping our volunteers stocked with materials, but after making thousands of pieces of PPE, we're running low on some things. Here's what we need:
Everything that isn't donated has to be purchased. If you have some extra dollars, please consider making a financial donation today to help keep our efforts going – every dollar matters.
If you have a sewing machine or 3D printer at home, we invite you to volunteer your time and help us make much needed PPE.
Don't have the materials? Don't sweat it, we've got you covered. Whether you need fabric or filament, we'll get you what you need and get the finished PPE when you're done.
Safety and cleanliness are paramount! Do not make PPE if you or someone in your household is sick. Do clean and sanitize your hands, tools, and workstation. Do wear a face mask when working on PPE. Do read this best practices guide:
We have been using a double-layer cotton/flannel pattern, as seen in pictures on this page.
But we're not picky – we will gladly accept masks of any design. If you're already using a pattern that you like, keep using it.
We have been making (and recommend) this reversible scrub cap for local healthcare workers. It requires two ½ yards (or fat quarters) of fabric, plus 42" of bias tape.
We are printing a face shield visor design that has been approved by the Fresno Madera Medical Society. They are requesting that visors be printed in PETG and are as smooth as possible.
There are many ear saver projects on Thingiverse, and there isn't really a wrong answer.
We've been printing this surgical mask ear saver at about 190mm long so that it works well with our cloth face masks.
