Healthiest Ames Community Project: 

Facemasks for Ames Community School District

Thank you for helping exceed our goal:  1 mask for every student

In 2020, Healthiest Ames organized a collaborative, community project to provide facemasks for every student in the Ames Community School District.  The project was a two-pronged approach to making facemasks available.

  1. Community volunteers worked to sew a large quantity of facemasks

  2. Fundraising to purchase materials and to purchase some pre-made masks. 

We are very proud of the success of this project and the overwhelming support from the Ames Community!

Total masks distributed: 15,700

Donations:  $12,000
