Ways to Help

Make Cloth Masks for Robert Wood Johnson Barnabas Health

We are accepting donations of cloth masks at this time. Your assistance in sewing masks for our staff will help ensure their safety. These masks will be used to provide extra protection to our professionals providing care outside of our COVID-19 units and allow us to reserve the special personal protective equipment for those at higher risk of exposure. Instructions for sewing masks can be downloaded here. Please see above for drop-off and delivery options.
