VOLUNTEER/DONATION NEEDS DURING THE COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) PANDEMIC

Companies like SEEC need PPE (personal protective equipment) for our staff who are providing 24 hour support to people with disabilities in their homes. Like assisted living and nursing homes, we are not hospitals and therefore lower on the supply chain, yet still need access to supplies to keep our staff safe. Here is how you can help SEEC during these challenging times:

Craft homemade surgical masks for DSPs

Volunteers with some spare time, basic sewing skills, and access to a sewing machine can help by crafting homemade surgical masks. Donations will be laundered and distributed to DSPs working in our community (see donation drop-off details below). Our goal is to be able to provide masks not only to our DSP’s but to every DSP in Maryland!

Here is a tutorial of how to craft the masks:
