SGN | Some Good News: DIY Face Mask #StoptheSpread
Each week, our Happiness and Wellness Initiative will share "Some Good News" from the SPH and our extended community. You can submit your own good news by email to: email@example.com.
Across the world we are all facing unprecedented times and are practicing safety protocols like wearing a mask, maintaining physical distancing and washing our hands frequently.
Cyndi Kershaw, an undergraduate teaching assistant program coordinator for the School of Public Health, has been making cloth masks to help to stop the spread of COVID-19. She’s made over 100 masks and counting, with delivery spanning across the US from Maryland to California. She is asking everyone to donate funds in lieu of payment to the UMD Student Crisis Fund, the Campus Pantry, and/or Keep Me Maryland.
