Making Masks and helping save lives!

April 1, 2020


The shortage of masks is a real concern for those fighting the spread of COVID-19. Spearheaded by Superwoman Saana McDaniel, who is Senior Program Manager at MIT, Project Manus & Make Impact Consortium is sewing from donated materials masks and caps for Boston Medical Hospital and Brigham & Women’s. In addition, they are working with MANNA to provide 200 masks for the unhoused community in downtown Boston. 

This group of six women are from Lexington, Boston, Medford and Belmont. There has been much sanitizing and sharing of supplies and a wonderful community has been borne of the need to provide for our front-line workers.

If you have an interest in helping out or to donate materials (1/2” double-fold bias tape, twill tape, or 1/8” inch elastic) please let Saana ( or Julie (MIT Student Furniture Exchange Manager - know and they will be in touch!
