Girl Scouts team up to sew masks, donate them to at-risk communities

Girl Scouts are used to helping others, but now they are making masks to help at-risk communities during the pandemic.
Lilly Clements turned her driveway into a workshop for a good cause, where the Girl Scout Troop 1582 member is teaming up with fellow member Tessa Cote to make face masks.
The inspiration came from Cote's mother.
"My mom's a doctor and she was telling us, there's people in need and there's some people that can't get masks as easily as we can, so we wanted to help provide for the people who might need it most," says Tessa Cote.
Clements and Cote are planning to donate the masks to the Family Service League. The social service agency provides emergency housing and support services to homeless individuals and families throughout Suffolk County.
"It's terrific for us ... we're going to need lots of masks for our staff, our clients going forward, so it's a great gift to us," says Family Service League President and CEO Karen Boorshtein.
The girls also enlisted the help of others in the community to help with the project, including JoAnn's Fabrics, who they say was very generous in donating fabric and elastic bands.
Clements and Cote say their goal is to sew and donate 200 masks.
