Tampa General Hospital asks for cloth mask donations

News

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Tampa General Hospital is calling on citizens to sew for the cause.

The hospital needs about 10,000 homemade cloth masks for staff to use in the coming weeks.

To make the masks, donors should follow the CDC guidelines and use a double layer of unused machine-washable cotton. You can find further guidelines and step-by-step mask tutorials from the CDC here.

Those who wish to donate can do so starting next week by visiting the hospital’s drop-off location at 1 Davis Boulevard in Tampa. Hours are Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

People can also donate masks through the mail by sending them to Tampa General Hospital, Attn: Volunteer Services, P.O. Box 1289, Tampa, FL 33601.
