The Sewing Army was created by Toronto Fashion Designer Diana, of Diana Coatsworth Design to respond to the shortage of PPE for Healthcare & Essential Workers during the COVID-19 crisis. The Sewing Army brings together over 3700 volunteers across North America to sew & donate PPE for organizations in need.
Since our last tally on June 18th, we’ve donated over 85,000 PPE to essential workers. As of June 2020, medical grade supplies are more readily available, so we’ve transitioned our PPE donations towards low income and non profit organizations in need.
Please remember that these masks are not medical grade or replacements for N95 masks and should not be used as such.
