While living through COVID-19 has been a challenging and stressful time for everyone, we are especially grateful for so many individuals who have reached out to provide support throughout the pandemic.
“We have had many family members and friends step forward and help during this pandemic to make masks, give financially, send letters, pray for our campus and so much more. We truly appreciate each and every individual for their assistance,” said Crystal Stock, marketing director.
One individual who has made a positive impact over the past few months is resident and resident council member Lorraine Morton. With other residents donating fabric, elastic, and their time, Lorraine sewed close to 200 masks for Presbyterian Manor employees.
“I saw a need and I couldn’t do anything or go anywhere. Gayla Browning cut them for me and then I sewed them up. I sewed the main part together as a chain, like quilters do their block, then I put them together and put the elastic in them. I think I can do five in one day. And Gayla could cut them out faster than I could sew,” said Lorraine.
The project was easy to do while social distancing. The biggest challenge was running out of fabric.
“I’m looking at ordering more cotton fabric online to make a few more. My goal is to make some masks for residents. I wouldn’t sell them, just give them out,” said Lorraine.
Thank you to everyone who is working so hard to keep us healthy!
