Robin Smith has been sewing face masks for her neighbors. "I started by making an announcement on NextDoor.com. I delivered to neighbors on my daily walks or left them on my front door in an envelope." Her husband Scotty also delivered masks in other parts of Paso Robles.
Robin says that people were very thankful. "One woman in my neighborhood is 83 years old and worried about going to the grocery store without a little more protection."
Another reason to wear a mask is to protect employees at a grocery store or pharmacy. "They go to work and make it possible for us to get our food and medications. Wearing a mask is the least I can do to protect them and let them know that I care about their welfare."
