Masks 4 MN is a local Facebook group that is run by two sisters who happen to be nurses and their mother. Their goal is to collect unused personal protective equipment including N95 respirators, surgical masks, hand-sewn masks, gloves, gowns, face shields, and eye protection. The women are working with the Zumbro Valley Medical Society and the Southeast Minnesota Disaster Health Coalition to distribute the life-saving equipment to area healthcare workers and first responders.

I LOVE seeing everyone step up to help others during this difficult time. If you have any unused equipment or are sewing masks at home and would like to help, you can reach out to the sisters on their Facebook group.
