A masks update from the Quilt Shoppe

25 Mar


Vanetta and Monique at The Village Quilt Shoppe are sending out daily updates for seamstresses (and seam…sters?)  interested in making masks for medical personnel. Today’s update will cheer anyone who wants to help but doesn’t want to (or can’t) leave the house to get materials or deliver masks.

The shop now  has a person who will pick and deliver masks and materials for anyone who needs that service. Just email them with your name, address — and number of kits you would like if that’s what you need — and the volunteer will drop things off or pick things up from your front porch, or anywhere else you specify.

The email is villagequiltshoppe@gmail.com.

They also remind us that “the kits from the RGH nurses need to come back to the store. WE do have other kits you can have to send to other locations if you prefer.”

They also received this letter from RGH which tells about other ways you can help:

We are grateful for the many offers of help. As you can imagine, it means the world to our health care teams to know that they have the support of our entire community. 

Here’s how you can help: 

Donate to our COVID-19 Support Fund – one of the best and quickest ways that you can help right now is to give to RRH COVID-19 Support Fund. This virus is difficult to predict, so donations will be used to meet our most pressing needs. 

Restaurant gift cards are a great idea – our hospital leadership teams can easily order meals before and after long shifts for our front line care providers to take home. 

If you are interested in donating food to RRH to support our clinical teams, please email Julie.hamil@rochesterregional.org. Please be aware we are unable to accept homemade food items. Food must be prepared in a commercial grade kitchen and packaged in individual servings 

Send encouraging messages to our patients – we suggest using social media. You can post videos and photos with #RRHspreadjoy, and we’ll share them with people who could use a smile. Or, if you’d prefer, send your messages to rrhfoundation@rochesterregional.org

As always, we appreciate messages of support for our health care teams. You can email messages to rrhfoundation@rochesterregional.org or post them on Rochester Regional’s social media channels. 

Donate face masks and other medical supplies. We are accepting masks that meet FDA/CDC guidelines as well as sewn masks. We aren’t particular about the color or pattern for sewn masks – we just appreciate your generosity. Additionally, we are accepting other medical supplies, like latex-free gloves and face shields. 

Donation drop off locations: Starting Friday, March 27th you’ll be able to drop off masks, gift cards and other supplies at three locations. Supplies will be distributed across Rochester Regional as needed to support our patients and care teams: 

RRH Administrative Offices Riedman Campus – North Entrance 100 Kings Highway South, Rochester Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am -2pm 

Newark Wayne Community Hospital Receiving Dock – North Side Entrance 1200 Driving Park Avenue, Newark Monday through Friday from 9am-2pm 

United Memorial Medical Center Jerome Center Loading Dock (off Wiard Street) 16 Bank Street, Batavia Monday through Friday from 10am-2pm 

Remember, you’re already helping our health care teams by staying home and by washing your hands frequently. Thank you for caring enough about your friends and neighbors to support their good health, and thank you for believing in us. You are now part of our team and together we can overcome this challenge.
