Domestic Abuse and Sexual Assault Crisis Center Donates Masks

To help keep the community safe from COVID-19, the Domestic Abuse & Sexual Assault Crisis Center (DASACC) has sewed and donated over 942 masks to over 25 businesses, organizations, and community members in the local Warren & Hunterdon County communities.

The masks were sewn by several DASACC staff and volunteers. Sarah Longyhore, a caseworker at DASACC’s shelter, helped to sew many of the masks. “I enjoy helping wherever is needed. When I heard about the shortage of masks in our community during the pandemic, I figured that even by making one to two masks from home that I can make a difference.”

DASACC also donated masks to St. Luke’s of Warren & Bethlehem, the Phillipsburg and Lopatcong Police Departments, Forest Manor Nursing Home, Visiting Homemakers Services of Warren County, Warren County Bus Transportation, Matheny Medical & Educational Center, and Warren Haven Nursing along with several other businesses and organizations in the Warren and Hunterdon County communities.

If you are a local community member, business, or organization in need of masks in the local Warren and Hunterdon County communities, please reach out to Morgan Stiles, Community Engagement Coordinator, to coordinate a pick-up or drop-off.
DASACC provides services to all victims regardless of their age, race, gender identity, socioeconomic status, immigration status, ability level, sexual orientation, or religion. If you or someone you know is being hurt, please call our 24/7 hotline at 888-998-4033 or 908-453-4181.
