According to a press release from Mayor Andy Schor, “Lansing residents have stepped up to use their creative talents in a whole new way by producing masks for those that need them. “While N95 masks are the preference, they are in short supply. Many Lansing residents have reached out saying they’d like to use their fabric and time to sew masks. We are appreciative of their efforts and will accept these donations at our drop-off locations and then get them out to first responders, healthcare workers, homeless shelters and others working with vulnerable populations. Thank you to all of the incredible Lansing residents who are thinking outside-the-box to help those in need in our community as we navigate this COVID-19 pandemic".
