Calling for Donations of Non-Medical Masks

For the safety of clients and staff during the resumption of in-person services, ISANS will be requiring staff and clients to wear masks or face shields when in the ISANS office.

Many clients do not have the resources to buy or make their own masks. We are asking for donations of masks – either store-bought (in the original, unopened packaging) or homemade masks (using the approved pattern here) to support our clients during the resumption of in-person services.

ISANS will launder and individually package all homemade masks prior to giving them to clients. Instructions on how to care for the mask will be included with each mask given to clients.

Instructions for dropping off masks:

  • Starting July, 6th masks can be donated at ISANS’ Mumford Office between 8:30am-4:30pm, Monday to Friday.
  • ISANS kindly requests masks are placed in the donation box provided outside the main office door.
  • Remember all home made masks must use an approved pattern for masks. If you require a pattern, please use this one provided by Health Canada.

If you have questions regarding donating masks, please reach out to ISANS at
