GFWC Observes National Women’s Health Week

May 7, 2020

The health and well-being of its members and communities has always been a high priority for GFWC. This year’s observance of National Women’s Health Week (May 10–May 16) is more important than ever as we all cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. Clubwomen throughout the Federation are therefore encouraged to pull out their sewing machines—or needles and thread—to make protective masks for women who are medical personnel or serving in other roles on the front lines. While not used in place of N95 masks, these mask can be worn in place of respiratory masks by essential workers when performing tasks other than ones involved with the Coronavirus.

Stay tuned to GFWC’s Blog for any success stories shared by clubwomen making these protective masks.
