Face Mask Donations & Resources
Edison's "Safer at Home" Team Kids Challenge! Do you have fabric to donate? Do you sew?
Torrance USD has been contacted by the Torrance Police & Fire Departments and multiple hospitals requesting donations of masks for first responders and medical professionals.
Edison PTA is asking for donations of store-bought masks, fabric (minimum 1-yard sections), elastic or hair ties (for around the ears), and thread used for making masks.
We are also seeking volunteers to sew masks from either your own materials or donated supplies. All store-bought and homemade masks will be donated to our local community first responders and their families.
Donation Deadline Extended: Thursday, May 7th, 2020 by 1 pm.
