CCE takes on #4HMaskTask

4-H Mask Task Banner

Even before the mandate that all New Yorkers wear a mask when in public and unable to adhere to social distancing guidelines, CCE and 4-H groups across the state were springing into action, sewing masks for essential workers. The NYS 4-H Mask Task centralizes those efforts and calls upon all New Yorkers to get involved in crafting cloth masks for our communities in need.

4-Hers, clubs, and volunteers across the CCE system can get involved, whether through sewing or fashioning no-sew masks, donating fabric and supplies, or just spreading the word and sharing in the gratitude for all essential workers who are helping to keep us safe at home.

CCE offices throughout New York are collecting and distributing the masks to essential workers and community members. The goal is #flattenthecurve and make a difference in the community.
