Operation Yes We CAN!
Grace DeDonato '22, shown here delivering a bag of face masks to David Fife, executive director of Benchmark Senior Living at Split Rock, has hand-sewn and donated hundreds of masks to several local hospitals and medical facilities.
Grace now wants to offer her talent to the SJ Community in exchange for a donation to a charity close to her heart, the Spooner House in Shelton, CT. Last year, Grace launched Operation Yes We Can! by organizing a food drive for the Spooner House.
Masks are homemade and 100% cotton two-ply secured with a variety of elastic-type materials and are washable with delicate care. There are 3 sizes available. The Adult Masks are one size fits all available in Men's, Women's, and Neutral Style. Children's Masks come in a Small (ages 3-6) or Large (ages 7-10), both available in Boys, Girls, or Neutral styles. They are one size fits all for adults in feminine, masculine and unisex fabrics. 100% of your donation will benefit the food bank at the Spooner House in Shelton, CT and will assist with putting food on the table for so many families in need.
We encourage you to make donations directly to the Spooner House to support Grace's efforts. The suggested donation is $7 per adult mask, $5 per child mask, and $25 per "Family Pack" (4 masks), but any amount is appreciated.
