Kewaunee Crafters donate over 500 masks

A potentially life-saving service project by the Kewaunee Artisan Center helped to collect over 500 donated masks this week. Bellin Hospital reached out to the organization’s president Cheryl Daul last Sunday to procure handmade face masks to protect medical professionals on the frontlines who are dealing with the coronavirus outbreak. Daul says the quilters had plenty of cotton fabric and a good pattern but it was a challenge finding elastic for the masks. She says over 30 volunteers participated in the successful project that left Bellin Hospital medical personnel impressed.



Daul says all the masks were bagged and dropped off on Friday at the Kewaunee Artisan Center. A total of 563 masks were made since Sunday and will be used by doctors and nurses in Green Bay.
