Ways to contribute

The Corvallis Sewing Brigade is made up of over 1300 volunteers!    

We welcome volunteers to sew masks and gowns, assemble face shields, assist with laser-cutting materials, drive deliveries, and more! Please visit the VOLUNTEERS page for details.

We welcome donations of supplies and materials! We have developed our mask, gown, and face-shield designs in consultation with the end-users (like healthcare agencies and first responders) and have a specific list of needs.

We are running out of fabric and sewing notions.  Your contributions to our GoFundMe will help the Brigade purchase materials to provide free masks in our community!


Those wishing to donate with a check can make it payable to Julie Williams and mail it to Corvallis Sewing Brigade; 

1333 NW 17th St.; Corvallis, OR; 97330


Please note that WE ARE NOT A NON-PROFIT (so we can't give you a receipt for a tax deduction on the donation).  We're just volunteers who appreciate community support to keep purchasing supplies.
