TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Making masks is a need people in Tallahassee have stepped up to meet since the beginning of the pandemic.

Sustainable Tallahassee and Rags 2 Bags showed their appreciation for mask makers Thursday.

Since the pandemic's start, their team switched from making bags to masks, hitting 15,000 so far.

The organization recruited sewers around the community to pitch in, with masks going to over 20 organizations throughout Leon County.

Peggy Clark made hundreds a day, more than 4,000 total.

"Everybody has a right to life, and if it's saving one more life with one more mask, I've done my job for God for one more day," said Clark.

With more than 15,000 behind them, the group plans to take a break from mask making and get back to sewing bags and other creative items.
