OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - We've seen posts all over social media about sewers making masks to help keep others safe.
Now local health care providers are hoping those same sewers can help protect some of the metro’s most vulnerable.
The Nebraska Health Care Association needs 5,000 cloth masks to distribute to nursing homes, assisted living facilities and hospice centers.
2-ply washable masks (placed in plastic sandwich bags – no more than five to a bag) can be dropped off in the collection bin at:
212 S. 74th Street, Suite #205
Omaha, NE 68114
Or mailed to:
Nebraska Health Care Association
