SisterWorks donates 5000 reusable face masks
5000 reusable face masks donated & we couldn't have done it without you!
We are so pleased to share with our incredibly supportive community that we reached our target of donating 5000 reusable face masks to community organisations across Victoria.
SisterWorks is thrilled by the outpouring of support for our ‘Donate-a-Mask’ project and our mission to help those that are vulnerable within our community to stay safe. We are grateful to be able to do our part, with your support, to ensure that a DHHS compliant reusable face mask was given to someone in need, providing them with essential health protection.
For every $10 donated to SisterWorks, we created and distributed a DHHS compliant reusable face mask to a vulnerable member of our community. Over the past couple of months, we forged some beautiful friendships with local organisations through these donations. These organisations have been providing incredible services for the vulnerable members of our community, keeping them safe and healthy during this difficult time.
