Face Mask Making
Contact Information and Instructions for Making Face Masks to Donate via SCRAP
This program is ongoing and we are actively looking for volunteers!
Hello Face Mask Makers
SCRAP thanks you for volunteering to make face masks benefitting the Tenderloin and Bayview/Hunters Point most-at-risk communities, by distribution through our local partner, the African American Art & Culture Complex.
We reached our first milestone of 1,100 masks, and still sewing!
Contact the SCRAP Programs and Outreach Manager, Gabriella Giuliani (firstname.lastname@example.org), for questions or concerns. Please email her if you have an interest in contributing to this project as a mask maker or partnering organization.
When your face masks are complete, there are two options to get them to us:
Mail to: Friends of SCRAP, 834 Toland St., San Francisco, CA 94124-1314
For larger quantities, please email to arrange pick up at your desired location in the San Francisco Bay Area
Face-Masks Designs and Patterns:
Kaiser Permanente Approved Face Mask Pattern - PDF pattern for pleated mask, with tie back closures
Craft Passion Face Mask Pattern -Includes modifications for filter pocket, removable nose wire, and sizing options.
New York Times Face Mask Pattern - Article with mask with tie back closures
Raising Nobles Face Mask Video - Pleated Mask, with modification for filter and wire inclusion, using elastic loops
*Please note, for everyone who is currently making face masks that will provide protection for general public use, its fine that you continue to use the pattern(s) you are comfortable with, using materials you already have on-hand.
For any significant quantities donated to SCRAP, which is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we will send out a donation receipt to the maker, which you can use to document its tax-deductible value.
Need Materials or Have Extra?
If you might need suitable material, such as plain fabric, elastic, and/or interfacing (to provide extra protection), please email Gabriella as we may have some of each available for distribution, if necessary.
If you want to contribute but not into sewing, that's ok! We are looking for contributions of fabric, and you can always donate.
Keep in mind that it may be best to preshrink new cotton before sewing, as these masks are meant to be washed and reused. After receipt, we will box and then quarantine the masks for a week to ensure they arrive at their distribution location virus-free.
