the project

During the COVID19 crisis, many individuals do not have access or sufficient funds to essential products that will keep them safe and healthy. Often times, people forget about those individuals who are unfortunate, and I want to change that. My goal is to create protective masks for the homeless and elderly community to keep them safe during this time. The facial mask will help prevent the spread of the virus and lessen their chances of contracting the virus from other individuals. The hand sanitizer will help the individuals spread fewer germs as possible for those who do not have access to soap and water. Our ultimate goal is to protect and keep homeless and elderly individuals healthy during this pandemic. The donations will help us purchase the materials needed to accomplish our goal.

the steps

First, my team and I will purchase the fabric, elastic bands, coffee filters, needle, thread, zip lock bags, and hand sanitizer.

Second, we will come together as a team to create the masks.

Third, we will place one mask and 1 bottle of hand sanitizer in a bag to distribute. 

May 2, 2020- Will be our first neighborhood canvas in the downtown area, where the majority of our homeless population resides, to distribute the products.

May 3-4, 2020- Will be our second event where we will canvas low-income neighborhoods and distribute the products to those in need.

why we're doing it

Our project will help solve social, economic, and environmental problems in several ways. Unfortunately, the society we live in today does not support every individual. Many individuals in the homeless community health needs are not being considered during this pandemic. My team and I are here to advocate for their health because they are important. Regarding the economic component, our project will be beneficial for individuals who do not have money to purchase these essentials that are needed. By providing them with free essentials it removes the financial burden individuals may face daily. Lastly, our project solves environmental problems by keeping us all safe. The hand sanitizer helps prevent germs and promotes hand hygiene. The face mask will prevent us from spreading the virus and put up a barrier from contracting the virus. Our mission is to keep all individuals safe and healthy.
