ATTC Pandemic Toolkit
Social Distancing does NOT equal Social Isolation
The ATTC Pandemic Toolkit is like any other toolkit; you will find things you use frequently and others that you never use. Please take what works for you, share whatever you find helpful and leave the rest.
We are adding new activities and websites to the Pandemic Toolkit all the time, so check back often for updates.
We would LOVE your input on activities and online sites that have been helpful to you during these challenging times; please email us at:
Cheer Cards for Seniors
The pandemic has been especially challenging for our elders in senior communities as they are not allowed visitors, even family members. While protecting them from COVID, the isolation and lack of human contact is causing mental distress and depression.
The Common Threads Cheer Cards project sends hand written notes that include a cheerful message, a riddle or joke and a Word Search puzzle to brighten their day and provide mental stimulation.
We are seeking donations of new, generic note cards, with envelopes for the Cheer Cards project. If you have cards to donate, please email: email@example.com
If you would like to volunteer for the Cheer Cards project, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
More details available soon!
SEWING PROJECT – FACE MASKS
Face masks are needed by Home Health Care Workers and nonprofit volunteers that provide support to seniors, the disabled and those with chronic health conditions. The efforts of our Home Health Care providers and community volunteers benefit all of us by keeping their clients, healthy, in their own homes and out of the hospital system.
We are using this pattern from Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, it includes instructions and a list of materials/tools needed.

- This pattern calls for two layers of fabric, if possible. consider adding an additional layer or 2 (no more than 4 layers total) for added protection.
- Use different colors for front and back for easy identification.
- 100% cotton is the preferred material (see attached list) so masks can be washed and sanitized when needed.
- Elastic can be substituted for the straps if you prefer.
If you can sew and are looking for a way to have a positive impact at this time, please consider, making face masks. You would be donating your time, making the masks and treasure by donating the supplies needed to do so. At the Table Colorado is a registered 501(c)3, so if you donate your masks through Table, we can provide a tax receipt for your in-kind donation. Please email us for details at: email@example.com
