Masks (N95 and Homemade) Needed in Windham County: Dr. Jeremy Morrison, at Home Farm Family Medicine in Brattleboro is in need of masks. He can be reached at [email protected]. Specifically, he needs them for office staff, patients, and to distribute to the homeless encampments in town. Thank you!
Brattleboro Memorial Hospital would prefer that you make these masks ONLY for their use (described below).
You may drop off finished masks and gowns in the receptacle on the porch of 55 Belmont Ave, Brattleboro, VT 05301. If you cannot make it out to the drop site, you can mail them here: C/O Gina Pattison, BMH, 17 Belmont Avenue, Brattleboro, VT 05301
