Here at Birch Hill, our residents have been busy sewing cloth masks, to help our non-profit community stay safe. In less than two weeks, the three communities of RiverWoods Exeter, Birch Hill, and RiverWoods Durham have sewn over 1,000 masks – but we need more.
There is a global shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and the cloth masks can help extend the life of our typical surgical masks.
If you are homebound, bored, and want a chance to give back, we have a great idea for you. All it will take is some tight-weave cotton and flannel fabric and follow the easy instructions below to help make more cloth masks for our front line health care staff working to keep older adults safe.

Thank you for the care and support, we are all in this together.
