Local News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — One local church is working to do its part during the pandemic.

A group from Trinity Lutheran has been active in the community for years by making clothes for babies and fidget blankets for the elderly, but in this time of need, it has shifted its attention to sewing love into masks for those who need personal protection equipment.

“At this time, we are making masks and up to this point we have made over 900 so far, and uh, we just keep making them, and when we hear of a need or get a call, then margaret sends out the word, and we all start making masks,” Frida Juve said.

The group is made up of 10 ladies that sew masks for local residents and even people who live out of the state.

They have each made over 100 masks, which then get distributed to employees and patients of several medical centers including dialysis patients and front line workers.
