masks made from donated fabric

Members of Richmond Zen made a number of masks from donated Diversity Thrift materials and then donated them to a local homeless shelter. “The masks are being used at a facility which is serving as a high-risk alternative shelter for people who were already in shelter when COVID-19 began,” shared Zen member, Blythe King. “They are older adults with many already having health issues. They were excited to receive them.”

Several hundred masks have been made by locals using Diversity Thrift fabric. Just one more way we are helping. If you would like fabric, please email us at
