For every $10 donated to SisterWorks, we will provide and distribute a DHHS mask to a vulnerable member of our community.
It is our passion at SisterWorks to support not only our community of Sisters but also the wider community around us.

This incredible response has inspired us to accelerate our mask donation project even further. Our next step is to connect with our amazing community, to work together and help those who are less fortunate. Want to join us? By contributing to our ‘Donate-a-mask’ program you can ensure that a DHHS compliant reusable Face Mask will be given to someone in need, providing them with essential protection for their health security, as well as the support of the community.
By selecting the “Donate a Mask” project through our online shop checkout, you will donate $10 to SisterWorks, which we will used to produce a DHHS Compliant Reusable Face Mask. SisterWorks will then distribute this mask to a vulnerable member of our community.
The only way out of these challenging times is to walk through it together. At SisterWorks, we truly believe that “Together we are Strong”. So, if you have the means, we strongly encourage you to ‘Donate–a–Mask’ today.
