During the early days of the COVID pandemic, Nevada City Rotary moved in to action looking for ways to help keep our community safe.  We partnered with a group of sewers who call themselves “Mask Warriors Unite” to host a series of Free COVID Mask Give Away drive through events.  Masks were donated by Nevada County Mask Warriors, Zips Face Masks, and Nevada City Rotarians.  

The Mask Warriors volunteer their time and expertise to make reusable cotton cloth masks with filter pouches to help us all fight the global COVID-19 pandemic. Materials are from the sewers’ personal supply or purchased with donations from the community, which are encouraged.

Nevada City Rotary also distributed free cloth masks during the Nevada County Health Department's Flu Shot Clinics and the Club's Food Bank of Nevada County Food Drive.  Overall the Club has distributed more than a 1,000 reusable face masks.
