Ambrose University invites you to help us provide each student with five face masks this fall. Our target is 3000 masks by August 15, 2020.
It is important that anyone involved with the creation of homemade masks be free of COVID-19 symptoms and should not have been recently exposed to anyone experiencing symptoms.
Masks can be made from any template. There are many examples on the internet. We are in need of standard adult face masks - with two layers. Please keep in mind when selecting the materials that masks should not be too heavy or hot for the wearer.
Typically, a mask requires the following materials:
- 100% cotton or muslin fabric for outer layer – Clean cotton bedsheets can be used as long as they are clean, unstained and breathable
- elastic or twill tape or cotton material for ties
- Sewing machine
- Light-colored thread
- A mask pattern
- Cutting device (scissors or rotary cutter with mat)
Mask can be delivered to Ambrose University's reception area, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Masks can also be mailed to:
150 Ambrose Circle SW
Calgary, AB T3H 0L5
When received, the masks will be washed before being delivered to students. Every mask matters. Thank you for your helping your community!
