Coastal Community Association of South Gulf County would like to put a challenge out to those good folks in Gulf County who can sew. Now, I can’t sew a button on that won’t fall right off, but there are some talented seamstresses in Gulf County who could knock out some of these much needed masks while they are safely staying at home.

We have folks at the Pig and IGA, first responders, service personnel, food preparers and servers bringing things to curb side, volunteers getting food out to the elderly and needy youngsters in our County, all who need some protection.

I understand the masks are simple to make and there are patterns available on line or on the internet.

So here is the challenge.

Can we get 200 masks made by Monday?

CCA will safely deliver them to those who need them.

What can you do?

Make some masks and drop them off in a safe plastic box under the porch at Gulf 2 Bay Construction office in Simmons Bayou, right across from the Shrimp Company, or mail them to 1934 SR 30 A, Port St. Joe, Fl, 32456.

We started this challenge last week and have had 21 masks dropped off or mailed in. One of my golfing buddies from Panama City Beach sent us a dozen in the mail this morning.

Call me at 229-7799 if you have any questions.

We only need 179 more to reach our goal and provide some safety to those who are working everyday to do so much for us. Please take time to help.

Thank you, be kind, be gentle, be safe.
