  • Mask Making Efforts

    We have had several inquiries regarding mask making efforts to help local hospitals and other organizations who are faced with possible shortages of this precious commodity. If you would like to assist, I ask that you please email or phone Mary Ann Conkel at maconkel@gmail.com, (512) 925-9758, who will be organizing this effort for the St. Richard's community. 


    Regarding specific types of masks, it appears, for now, that the need is for tight-weave breathable cotton COVERS for the n95 masks -- single or double layers WITHOUT INTERFACING with 2-3 pleats and with four 14" ties -- final product about 7-1/2" X 5-1/2".  Some have suggested that ties made from bias tape are effective.
