Making masks for schools
The start of school for Madison Elementary, the school across the street from St. Paul, is now set for Tuesday, Sept. 8. St. Paul people are helping by making face coverings for kids and staff.
Led by the St. Paul quilters, people are welcome to help how they best can – cutting, sewing, or tying. Volunteers can pick up and deliver supplies and finished masks if needed.
The school’s principal, Steve Mielenhausen, and St. Paul’s neighborhood schools partnership coordinator, Dana Welser, “are both very happy that we’re doing this project to help them get started with this challenging school year,” said Karin Hanson, one of the coordinators.
