During the coronavirus pandemic, Columbia County is pulling together resources one mask at a time.
Recognizing the worldwide shortage of surgical masks during the coronavirus pandemic, three residents of Springlake Manufactured Home Park in Scappoose have come to the rescue with handmade protective masks for the staff at Avamere at St Helens.
Sue LaCamp, Ginny Horton and Lois Corliss have made and donated approximately 60 masks.
"It’s giving people a sense of accomplishment and helps those who are out of work and or stuck at home with something to do for others that will make an impact," Avamere spokesperson Jenny Hicks told The Chronicle. "These are difficult times. Changing times. Great Communities like Springlake in Columbia County are up for the challenge."
