Cloth Face Mask Goal Exceeded
Posted on April 9, 2020 by VMMissions Staff
Thanks to everyone who gave of their time, talent, and resources to meet this urgent need.
Due to an outpouring of community support to equip area poultry workers with cloth face masks, VMMissions has delivered a total of 2,075 masks, exceeding the goal of 1,500!
See the article in the Daily News-Record about this project.
As VMMissions concludes this particular mask drive, we are aware that the economic impacts of COVID-19 are being borne disproportionately in the U.S. by immigrant families, many of whom are greatly affected by reduced hours and layoffs. In response, VMMissions created the Coronavirus Immigrant Care Fund to provide tangible help in the form of cash gifts, working with immigrant pastors to identify needs in their midst.
