Support Our Staff with Handmade Fabric Masks

Lutheran SeniorLife would like to invite you to donate hand-sewn fabric masks in response to the personal protective equipment (PPE) shortage. Please note that we recommend using a high thread count with an interface or flannel lining for this project. Make it fashionable, make it fun – as long as it’s cotton, you’ll help a ton!

Drop-off points

Masks can be dropped off Monday through Friday between  9 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the following Lutheran SeniorLife locations:

  • Lutheran SeniorLife Corporate Office – 191 Scharberry Ln. Mars, PA 16046
  • VNA, Western Pennsylvania – 154 Hindman Rd. Butler, PA 16001

Passavant Community residents and staff are encouraged to drop-off masks to Donna Cawthorne at 105 Burgess Drive in Zelienople, PA.


Contact Debbie Kaylor at (724) 431-3283.
