Clarkesville’s on-going mask ministry needs more volunteers

The mask ministry that started through the Bethlehem Baptist Church in Clarkesville has so far made almost 3,000 masks that have been distributed for free to hospitals and local caregivers and sold to raise funds to support local ministries in Clarkesville and Cornelia. However, as the issues of living with the Covid-19 restrictions continue, the need for masks have also continued and grown.

The need for more volunteers who can sew has become critical. If you can sew a straight line, you qualify for this ministry. Volunteer sewers are provided with all the materials needed: precut masks pieces, jersey ear loops, black and white thread, and a lightweight metal nose piece. Hands-on tutorial assistance is provided as you get started.

Most important, social distancing is maintained with a pick-up and drop-off area at Bethlehem Baptist Church.

For more information or to get started, please contact Janice Mangimelli, the ministry’s coordinator, by text 770-710-3479 or email
