Lancaster Masks 2020
Lancaster Masks is the result of collaboration among a diverse group of people in Lancaster, PA. Most of them did not know each other prior to forming this group, but united in order to serve a community need.
When they began hearing about local hospitals and primary caregivers running out of protective face masks, several prolific sewers formed online groups, inviting others to join to pool resources and advice, in order to mass produce masks and distribute them as quickly as possible.
These groups soon realized they could be even more effective by combining forces and coordinating with local entrepreneurs Phil and Annamarie Lapp -- so Lancaster Masks was born.
