As Montevallo students return to campus in a few weeks, we’re doing everything we can to keep them and our entire UM family safe. Through the generosity of the UMNAA, every student, faculty and staff member, and members of our alumni boards are being provided with one cloth mask (a total of 5,000 masks).
Students, however, will need extra masks to ensure they always have access to a clean mask between washes. The masks donated will be available for students to pick up on campus as needed along with a card explaining best practices for using and sanitizing their new masks.
That’s where you come in! We’re looking for donors and sewists to help us provide extra masks for UM students.
We met our initial goal of 500 masks as school started and have added 260 more in the month of September. If you are a maker or know a maker, we need your help! Help us reach 1,000 masks by the end of October!
Sewing not your thing? We’re collecting materials for our sewists, like fabric, elastic and thread. We can also accept donations of pre-purchased fabric masks, or you can make monetary donations to cover materials by donating below.
When donating, if you are affiliated with an alumni club, please list in the “comment” section below. (e.g. Greek Alumni, Old Golds, Vintage Purples, Minority Alumni Club, Shelby County Alumni Club and other area alumni clubs)
(Financial donations may also be sent to: UM Foundation, University of Montevallo, Station 6215, Montevallo, AL 35115. Please specify for the Mask Initiative and include an alumni group you would like credited for the donation.)
