QUINCY, IL (WGEM) - Seamstresses in the Tri-State community continue to come together to do what they can to help during this time of COVID-19.

On Monday Debi Moore, who helps sew masks, dropped off 585 masks at Quincy Medical Group. She said they were made by about 200 to 300 people of all ages. Moore said while they are making masks for other members of the community, they want to make sure the medical staff is handled first.

"We recognize how vital they are to this war," said Moore. "They have a willingness to stand in the front lines and risk their lives for us,
for our community."

She hopes to drop off another 400 to 500 by Friday. Moore asking restaurants or anyone that have spare cloth or cloth napkins they can donate to turn into masks. She said there are bins to donate cloth and elastic at Emerald City Jewelers on 33rd and Broadway. Her goal is to be able to have enough masks to have set up at grocery stores for anyone that enters can have one.
