TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Sustainable Tallahassee is asking for help making masks for students this school year.

The group is providing the materials and giving out free mask-kits to anybody who wants to help. You just have to put them together.

Sustainable Tallahassee has helped make more than 60,000 masks for people since the pandemic started.

The goal is to make 3,000 masks for students going back to class.

The group says they're excited to help connect people to a way to give back.

"One of them brought in 180 masks that they had made this week," said Peggy Sanford with Sustainable Tallahassee. "People who are quilters. This lady who came by said give me six kits because I don't have anything else to do during this pandemic and this will give me something to make me feel like I'm helping."

If you'd like to pick up your own mask-kit and help, stop by the back-parking lot of First Presbyterian Church on Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
