What is "Sew to Save"?

In collaboration with Velda Wang and Pamela Esquivel, I started a project in April of 2020 called "Sew to Save" which makes hand-sewn cloth masks for groups in need of them. After spreading awareness of the project, we have raised $1500 to buy mask-making materials like fabric, elastic, thread, etc. So far we have made over 2200 masks in total and donated to local places in Atlanta such as Emory Healthcare Clinic, Atlanta Mission Homeless Shelter, Village Vets Animal Hospital, Parkview High School Staff, Lilburn Library, and many more.
