Letters to the Editor

There is a community project that we can help with right now during this critical time. Our health care workers and emergency service professionals – fire and police – are at higher risk of exposure to the coronavirus. Lakeland Community Church is organizing a face mask sewing project. Contact Kate (Serve@Lakeland.Church) to let them know how many face masks you can sew.

Kate’s group of volunteers will then arrange for a porch pick-up, so you can Stay Safer at Home. The goal is 2000 face masks for Walworth County by Good Friday, April 10. Reminders on the Lakeland Community Church site:  Do not make masks for donating if there is anyone in your home who smokes, has tested positive for COVID-19, or has any symptoms of any respiratory illness. Please pre-wash fabric, wash your hands and work in a clean environment, and work with the supplies you have at home. There are face mask patterns if needed, but you can use your own design.

Let’s participate at home by sewing face masks for those in our community on the front lines. Another community project to assist with is the Lake Geneva Food Pantry for which attention is always needed but especially now with so many out of work. To minimize the risk and to encourage the Safer at Home directive, they are accepting only monetary donations which will be used to purchase the perishables that are then made available at the food pantry location on Wisconsin Street.  Use the Donate button at   Lake Geneva Food Pantry
