Protective Face Masks For Communities in Need
Mixed Blood Theatre
Mixed Blood Theatre, in the Minneapolis Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, is committed to distributing over 1,000 masks to neighborhood residents over the coming months, along with information on the importance of masks in the fight against COVID-19. Mixed Blood is partnering with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota on this initiative, and Blue Cross employee volunteers are stepping up to make and donate masks. Please follow this link to more information on this partnership: Blue Cross MN Blog Mixed Blood Theatre is accepting masks of any design (please, no animal prints). Children's masks would be very appreciated!

Mask Kits Available
Are you in need of fabric? Once again, Sew Good Goods is partnering with Treadle Yard Goods to continue to provide mask kits at no charge for these communities.
The kits include elastic/loops and enough fabric for 12 3-layer adult-sized masks. The kits can be used to make children’s masks as well, and these are also urgently needed. Kits are available for pickup at Treadle during regular business hours.
Treadle is also serving as a drop-off for finished masks for all four initiatives, in addition to individual hand sanitizer for the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood project.
Thank you for your ongoing support!
