FCPHD Accepting Mask Donations

FCPHD Accepting Mask Donations

Illinoisans are currently required to wear a face covering or mask in public, and FCPHD wants to ensure community members have what they need to meet that requirement and stay protected. Therefore, FCPHD is accepting mask and cloth face covering donations to help distribute to community members in need. Any person in need of a face covering or interested in donating to the cause, should contact the FCPHD office, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. As a reminder, the FCPHD office is currently closed to the public, so please call the office before dropping off or picking up supplies. The FCPHD office number is (217) 379-9281.

If donating a cloth face covering the following specifications should be met:

  • Be made from several layers of fabric that can still be breathed through
  • Be large enough to reach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nostrils
  • Be able to be secured with ear straps or ties for behind the head
  • Be able to be washed and dried without damaging the material or shape

Please follow the CDC’s guidance on how to make a face mask:
