Mt. Tam Quilt Guild members have responded to the urgent need for face masks during the COVID-19 health crisis. In March, Mt. Tam Quilt Guild delivered fabric masks to (above, top) Sara Fondriest, volunteer coordinator of the MarinHealth Medical Center and earlier this month, face masks were given to Jullea Ramos of Homeward Bound of Marin (above, bottom) and also to Hospice by the Bay’s Volunteer Services Department.

The Marin Museum of Contemporary Art (MarinMOCA) and ExtraFood are harnessing the creative power of artists to raise money to feed the needy in Marin County. MarinMOCA’s member artists are creating masterpiece-inspired masks and posting photos on social media with #Mask_erpiece. The challenge is backed by a group of donors who contribute $5 for every new post with a total of $5,000 available to go to Extrafood, an organization serving on the
front lines of this crisis by rescuing food and delivering freshly-made meals to Marin’s food-insecure population through over 100 local safety net partners. Pictured (above, top) MarinMOCA Program Manager Pat Doherty and (above, bottom) MarinMOCA Executive Director Nancy Rehkopf.
