OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Often we do stories on volunteer efforts to ask for your help. But this is something different.

When UNMC and Nebraska Medicine put out the call for volunteers to make masks, they received such a huge response right away that they have enough sewers.

While they don't need more volunteers right now, they are keeping volunteers in a database. If you'd like to be part of that, you can email Hannah at

3 News Now Anchor Jennifer Griswold talked to those involved in the project not to ask for more help, but just to show you how giving Omaha is.
