COVID-19 Older Adult Resources

Our lives have been severely disrupted by the public health concern that COVID-19 presents. We are working hard to find unique and innovative ways to bring accurate protective information to Menasha's older adults and continuing a connection to the Senior Center which is a relied upon hub for social connection and health.

Cloth Face Coverings
We are so grateful for the skill and compassion that walks through our doors. Thank you for doing your part to stay home and protect our community. We hope that for those times when leaving the house is inevitable we hope you are taking precaution by using a cloth face covering. If you feel so inclined we hope you'll consider making a couple extra for others working hard to do their jobs. 

Once you have completed coverings drop them by the Menasha Police Department (or give a call if you need help getting them to the police department) and they will sanitize them with their UV light and get them into the hands of those who need them most. 
Patterns (no sew as well!) for cloth face coverings are here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/DIY-cloth-face-covering-instructions.pdf sewingmasktshirt
