What a blessing our Communities have been during these difficult times.  The Makers Cottage had a mask campaign for 10 weeks.  I made masks for donations to the Conestoga Food Bank run by Bethel Evangelical Congregational Church.  I made 450 masks during this time and we had 2 1/2 loads of food and raised $1235.00. 
(March - Mid May 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic)
