Making Ames the healthiest community in Iowa
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.
Community volunteers worked to sew a large quantity of facemasks
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
We want to thank the generous citizens and organizations that donated to this project:
