Healthiest Ames Community Project: 

Facemasks for Ames Community School District

Help us reach our goal:  1 mask for every student

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

  1. Community volunteers are working to sew a large quantity of facemasks

  2. Healthiest Ames is also organizing a campaign to collect financial donations to purchase materials and to purchase some pre-made masks. 

The project will supply every student in the ACSD with one facemask and will also provide multiple face masks for students on free and reduced lunches.  Healthiest Ames is seeking individual volunteers and organizations to sew facemasks and also financial donations.  Use the donate button below or send your donations to: Healthiest Ames, PO Box 166, Ames, Iowa 50011.   Healthiest Ames is a 501(c)3 organization!


Each $25 will fund approximately 10  pre-made masks or materials to make 50!

Volunteers are needed to sew masks of varying sizes for this project.  We are using, with permission, the mask pattern from the craft passion website- there is a video demonstration linked below.  Scroll down to view the mask template file for each age group.
