Masks for the Frontlines Iowa is a group of individual volunteers who contribute of their time, their talents, and more often than that, the materials used to construct the face masks requested.
Please think of our individual sewists when you make your requests and please keep the numbers feasible. Our volunteers love to see their masks in action. If possible, please post a picture of people wearing the masks in our facebook group to say thanks. Donations are welcomed and much needed to replenish supplies and materials. Please visit masksforiowa.com/donate.
Our focus is on non-profits, schools, and Iowa-basied small businesses, and other organizations that need masks for their frontline workers. If your business or organization has the means to purchase masks, please do so we can make sure to direct our volunteer resources to those who can't.
Styles: Olson or Basic Pleated
Straps: Cotton Ties or Elastic

*Note: we will try our best to accommodate special requests but keep in mind that the more specific you make your order, the longer it may take to receive it.
Once you make your reqeust and it is approved, we will post it on SignUp for our volunteers to start working on. For larger orders, there may be multiple volunteers that make your masks. That means you may receive the masks in batches. You can see how it works here: https://signup.com/go/btkGogj
Our volunteers are taking precautions as well. Volunteers will wash the masks after they are done and we recommend you wash them again before handing them out. Click here to ready our safety guidelines.
Our masks are labor of love and must be donated.
