Group in Wayne County has sewed more than 30,000 masks

A local group of sewers has made more than 30,000 masks for medical staff, Native Americans, and migrant workers.

The group is called “We are int his together, Sew Away Corona,” and was featured by RochesterFirst.com.


Kim Day founded the group on Facebook. A friend of hers at a local hospital called at the start of the pandemic. She was worried about there not being enough. masks.

Dey coordinated a group of people who had material and interest. More than 500 people are now involved.

“There’s other locations that people drop stuff off at, and I would pick up from them as well,” Dey said. “There’s a need for face masks for teachers going back to school, so that’s a high need but each mask takes 45 minutes to make.”

And the community has rallied around them, too.
