Our Support Network

HUBS

We are very excited to have tremendous help from our committed hub leaders. They are an integral part of our mission and help coordinate the incredible number of volunteers we have.

Our hub coordinator roles involves cutting the raw materials to create the kits, connecting with volunteers within 15km radius to coordinate kit and mask delivery. This is a very important volunteer role to make sure we are meeting the current demand of masks and our growing volunteer community. We are always open for interest in this leadership role. Please email us at stitch4corona@gmail.com if you are interested in leading and/or have more questions.
