ThedaCare has received many offers of help from our community to donate handmade fabric masks to help our team members. We are extremely grateful for these offers.

In order to sew handmade fabric masks, ThedaCare is asking sewers to follow this tutorial on How to Sew a Face Mask. In addition, here is the link to the pattern used in the tutorial. We ask that the tutorial is followed closely to create masks that could potentially be used. When making masks, sewers should use washable 100% cotton fabric, double layer with different fabrics for each side of the mask.

If donated fabric masks are not needed, the unused masks will be shared with other organizations in need. If there is still a surplus, masks will be stored with ThedaCare Emergency Management to be readily available if future needs arise.

Questions regarding donations of any kind can be directed to our Foundation at or 920-738-6503.
