Masks Of Love 2020

The Family and Community Education Club members in Bedford County have been busy making over 600 fabric masks for health care workers, trucking industry workers, friends, family, the Sheriff’s Department, church members, nursing home workers and more.

Through the Masks of Love program, masks are being sewn all over the state by FCE members, 4-Hers and other volunteers.

We thank you for supporting our community and keeping us safe!
