Young Women Leaders help make masks for front line workers
Gelasia Tiwana leads South Bay Chapter of Masking a Difference
Eager to give back to the community despite current limitations, a group of volunteers has organized efforts in which mask ambassadors machine sew masks, and card creators design heartfelt illustrations and messages. These efforts provide frontline workers and other facilities in South Valley and throughout Santa Clara County with the personal protective equipment they need to stay safe from the coronavirus.
Gelasia Tiwana’s chapter services Morgan Hill, Gilroy, Capitola, Santa Cruz, and Watsonville. The program aims to bring together people of all ages, ethnicities, and genders in a collective effort to combat the struggles they see in the community caused by COVID-19, she said.
