ROCK SPRINGS — A drop-off container has been set aside at Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County to collect homemade long-sleeved gowns and masks, according the Public Information Officer Deb Sutton.
The container can be found at the main doors to the hospital on College Drive. Simply drive up to the front doors, and drop them in the receptacle. If you don’t sew, but have material to donate, it also can be dropped off.
The hospital is asking that isolation gowns be made out of medium to thick soft cotton, preferably KONA cotton. For the masks, please use a single layer of 100 percent cotton fabric. Tying strings are preferred over elastic straps, but either is acceptable.
Patterns for both can be found at www.sweetwatermemorial.com. Click on the COVID-19 page link at the top and look for Gowns & Masks on the right side of the page. For more information on how to donate, contact Janae Gale, Community Outreach and Volunteer
Services Director, at 307-352-8418.
