Join the movement to #MaskUpMKE

In this moment of unprecedented need, our community has set a goal:

Create 3.5 million no-sew masks for our frontline essential service workers.

And to achieve this goal, we need YOU. Thank you to everyone who has already made, or signed up to make, masks. With your help, we are well on our way to reaching our goal – but we're not there yet!

Volunteers are invited to pick up a mask kit from Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, take the kit home to assemble the no-sew masks, then return the assembled masks to Fiserv Forum.

In order to ensure masks are safe to be distributed throughout our community, volunteers must meet specific requirements to be eligible to assemble masks. You must confirm that all statements below are true for you and anyone in your household/facility where masks will be made.

  • I have not experienced any symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath) in the past 4 weeks.
  • I have not come into contact with anyone testing positive for COVID-19 in the past 2 weeks.
  • I have not, to my knowledge, been exposed to or come into contact with someone with or presumed to have COVID-19 in the past two weeks.
  • I am not a smoker or have a history of lung disease (or any other disease that makes you more likely to get a respiratory infection).
