As Springfield and Greene County begin to re-open for business, our nonprofit community expects to see an increase in demand for services. Hundreds of nonprofit staff, volunteers, and clients, including our own, will need to continue taking precautions to stay healthy. This includes frequent hand-washing, physical distancing, and using cloth face covers when around others. We need your help to make sure that everyone stays safe when it's time for us to meet again, and there is a way for you to help us without leaving home! 
If you have the time, skills, and supplies, we need volunteers like you to make reusable cloth masks for our nonprofit community. This is how you can help us fill the need for masks:
  • Visit the CDC's website here for a template to make traditional sewn masks and no-sew t-shirt masks
  • Make as many masks as you can!
  • Let Community Partnership know when the masks are ready by calling 417-812-5616 or emailing [email protected] to schedule a time for mask drop-off.
  • Pat yourself on the back for helping our community!
Community Partnership of the Ozarks and United Way of the Ozarks are working together to make sure that masks are distributed fairly to area nonprofits that need them. Again, you can arrange a time to drop off your masks by calling 417-812-5616 or emailing [email protected]. Thank you so much for your dedication to our community!
