Student volunteers and the McMaster School of Nursing are spearheading an initiative to give people who are marginally housed, homeless, or at risk of homelessness the tools to protect themselves from COVID-19.
Students from MacSOC (the McMaster Student Outreach Collaborative) are working with community organizations to distribute handmade masks and to educate individuals about how to use them safely and effectively.
The students are funding the mask drive using a “buy one, give one” model. For $24, a member of the public can purchase a mask for themselves and donate one to a person in need. To purchase a mask for yourself and donate one to a person in need, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
