Good Shepherd Employees Step Up to Sew Masks

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and global shortage in medical face masks, Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network employees from various departments are helping to sew masks to supplement the health-care organization’s own supply.

Working from Good Shepherd Home – Raker Center in Allentown, the Good Shepherd team is aiming to produce 500-1,000 masks that can be washed, allowing them to be reused.

Materials, Additional Homemade Masks Needed

To help with producing the masks, Good Shepherd is seeking donations of non-woven fusible interfacing, which is used inside the mask as a filter. Donations can be dropped off at the front entrance of Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital, 850 S. 5th Street, Allentown, PA. Please make sure items are clearly marked.

Additionally, if you have basic sewing skills and want to help make masks for Good Shepherd from your home, contact us online or call 1-888-44-REHAB. Good Shepherd can provide you with the preferred sewing pattern for the homemade masks (download instructions).
