Over the last six months we have all made significant changes to our lifestyles in order to stay healthy as well as to help protect those around us. Medical professionals and researchers now agree that wearing face masks is an essential way to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Shredding will be at Island Beach parking lot between 9:30am and 11:45am on Saturday, Oct 10th.

In order to encourage COVID prevention and compliance with local requirements, fabric face masks handmade by a local vendor, RubySewCute, will be available for purchase at Shredding Day.

Masks are sized for both adults and kids, are comfortable, washable, and will be available in a choice of attractive fabrics. Each mask is individually wrapped and they make great gifts.

Adults masks are $10 each or 3 for $25, and kids’ masks are $8 or 3 for $20. We can accept CASH ONLY – exact change, please. A portion of the proceeds of all sales will go to Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich to support their remote learning program.

Ann and Anni, owners of RubySewCute, began making masks for local health care providers when COVID was first reported and a severe shortage of masks existed. Their charitable outreach has turned into a successful business since the need for us all to wear masks is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. Ann and Anni try to honor their charitable
roots by donating at least one mask for every one sold and they take pride in supporting local non-profits.

For example, they recently delivered a large order of masks to Starfish Connection, a Stamford organization whose mission is to provide mentoring, guidance and advocacy to promising students from underserved families. Visit www.etsy.com/shop/rubysewcute or email Ann and Anni at [email protected]
