I am trying to find out information on what type of help you need regarding meals on wheels, Food bank, etc.
Which county are you in?
The basic need for such is that they don't have enough masks. Most masks are diverted to health care. So, homemade masks for those types of situations could be helpful. If you just reach out to any of those folks and ask if they have a need, they can let you know.
Thanks for your consideration.
What about 3d printed face shields?
Are the ones from the NIH acceptable?
Yes. Several locals are printing those.
