In partnership with the Orleans Northern Essex County Response Team, we are working to supply the community in our region with masks for free. We have been generously supported by Vermont Teddy Bear Company & many community volunteer stitchers. Masks are currently being distributed at locations throughout the region and we are doing the best to continue to supply these locations with masks for patrons or community members who need them.
If you need a face covering, the BEST place to contact is one of the towns on the Vermont Emergency Management list of municipalities who are working with the State of Vermont to distribute thousands of donated face coverings – sizes are good for smaller adult faces or larger adult faces:
Local locations where you can get free face coverings:
- The Glover Store, Newport Center
- Hillikers Store, Newport Center
- Hoagies, Newport location
- Boutin’s, Troy
- Troy Country Store, Troy
- West Main Deli, Newport
- Vista Foods, Newport
- Brown Cow, Newport
- Wendy’s, Newport/Derby
- Domino’s Pizza, Newport/Derby
- NEKCA Youth Services, Newport
- NEKCA – Main Street, Newport
- Newport Farmers Market

We are always looking for stitchers to join our project.
