One thing we miss most is bringing families and seniors together at our community building events – where they enjoy great food, share stories, and strengthen connections with their neighbors.

A group of women from Plant City, Florida who met at their Project Access Resource Center have rallied to fight this pandemic and support their local community. 

After receiving a donation from their local JOANN Fabric and Craft Store, the women have stepped up as seamstresses and fabric cutters to make masks. So far, they’ve sewn and donated masks to the local hospital, Lakeland Regional Health and school personnel who are distributing food to kids.

The group will continue sewing masks until they run out of fabric. They want to get these masks into the hands of essential workers who live in their community.

Over a year ago, these women were just strangers or acquaintances, but since then, they’ve built a sense of community and we’re so grateful to be a part of it.
