MMCF has teamed up with Mammoth Mountain and Mammoth Hospital to run a Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) drive for the community. We will be collecting bootie covers, masks, gowns and more to help keep our community and medical employees safe. The location to drop off PPE is at the Mountainside Center Ticket office, located on Canyon Blvd (in the Village). Drop-off/pick-up hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
How to Make PPE
For anyone who is interested in making PPE for the drive, click the links below to view patterns and directions on how to sew the following items:
- Masks: CDC Mask Patterns », Alternate Mask Pattern » (If you don’t have elastic, please use ribbon or sewn ties that are long enough to be tied into a good sized bow at the back of a person’s head as good alternatives)
- Scrub Hats »
- Shoe Covers »
- Scrub Pants »
- Scrub Tops: for scrub tops, we suggest just tracing an outline of a scrub top, cutting two pieces and sewing them together, hemming the edges. This would make it easiest to make various sizes. They could ideally put patch pockets on them. There are lots of patterns, but we couldn't find an easy free pattern. There are also some easy video tutorials if people want to search for it that way.
Our top needs at this time are SCRUB HATS and SHOE COVERS. We prefer that this is all to be 100% cotton material (quilting weight). Please find ways of getting your own fabric for this.
