Medina County Board of DD Seeking Handmade Masks and Gowns

Medina, Ohio, April 2, 2020 – The Medina County Board of DD is dedicated to helping our community, especially in times of crisis. Due to the current shortage of personal protective equipment, many direct care staff and caregivers who work with people with disabilities are left without the equipment they need to maintain personal safety.

If you or someone you know is able to sew and has materials on hand, please consider making and donating handmade face masks and gowns. Information and instructions can be found on our website at The MCBDD is collecting donations at the Achievement Center (4691 Windfall Rd, Medina) – a drop-off donation box is located outside the building at the Adult Services entrance. If you are unable to drop off items, please email us at or call 330-725-7751, so we can arrange another way to gather your items. We will distribute these items to local providers and caregivers in need. Thank you for helping and sharing this information in any way you are able.
