US Alpine Skier Handmakes 3,000 Face Masks

By

“3,000 MASKS DONATED!! Since the ski season came to a massive halt, my family and I have started sewing face masks for the community. I’m beyond proud to say we have donated 3,000 homemade masks, as well as giving bolts of fabric to other people in the community, so they can sew their own.  It is imperative that everyone does their part in social distancing, and when you do go out in public wear a face mask! It doesn’t just help protect you, it helps protect the essential workers that risk getting infected everyday they go to their job. STAY SAFE!! Keep the good vibes going.”

US Alpine Ski Team member, Ainsley Proffit, has been hard at work alongside her family handmaking 3,000 facemasks to be distributed among the local community in St Louis during the COVID-19 outbreak. Inside The Games reports Proffit’s family owns a small children’s clothing company and her mother came up with the idea of producing the masks:

“When she started hearing about the shortages all around, she knew we had to step in. Together, my mom, dad, and I transitioned the clothing business into mask-making instead – we are cutting and sewing all masks here in St. Louis.”Ainsley Proffit
