While I have stayed at L. Bergstrom (23)’s family in the past months as I am unable to obtain a VISA renewal in China due to Covid-19, the family made over fifty masks and gave out most of them to those in need, including 39 masks to a nurse at the Dignity Hospital in Folsom, CA. Heartwarmingly, it has been an effort of more than one family. Many in the neighborhood offered homemade masks to others who cannot access one, and one family put up a “mask tree” for zero-contact pickups.
