    Looking for ways to help the community during the pandemic? Join the YCC community mask-making taskforce. There are a couple of ways you can help provide masks for those who can’t access them:

    • If you can’t sew or don’t have the time you can donate fabric, elastic or shoelaces (materials that can be used are polyester blends, cotton, t-shirts, reusable ‘green’ shopping bags, exercise clothing);
    • If you have a sewing machine you can help make the masks;
    • If you are interested in helping, please confirm how you would like to contribute by filling in our mask making task force survey at:
