Pinnacle Presbyterian Church --- a longtime UMOM supporter through meal service, donation drives, and various volunteer activities --- delivered over 750 sewn masks with more on the way.
When Pinnacle Presbyterian heard about the need, members immediately got to work to answer the call for help, according to a press release.
The congregation delivered more than 750 face masks, which was enough for every woman at UMOM’s women’s emergency shelter and masks for all family members at the family emergency shelter, the release said.
“Like everyone else across the country, we’ve been trying to secure face masks for weeks to no avail,” said James Dutcher, UMOM’s director of facilities, in a prepared statement.
The church members are now working on masks for UMOM’s three youth sites, noted the release.
“Pinnacle is humbled by the opportunity to help. We can’t cure the virus, but we can pray, we can give, and it turns out we can sew! So many stepped forward to assemble and deliver these face masks. We hope they’ll help, and we hope to do more,” said Pinnacle Presbyterian Church Senior Pastor Dr. Wesley Avram in a prepared statement.
“We are so grateful to our friends at Pinnacle Presbyterian. The love and support from the group are palpable. These masks are critical in our effort to keep everyone safe and healthy on our five campuses as we ride out the COVID-19 wave,” said Cassidy Penney, UMOM’s director of marketing and outreach, in a prepared statement.
