Oak Hill woman sewing over 100 masks for healthcare workers

OAK HILL, WV (WOAY) – One Oak Hill woman is spending her time in self-quarantine making masks for healthcare workers.

While Pam Vance is home with her son who has a heart condition, she is putting her sewing skills to use as she is working on making at least 120 masks.

She has currently made 40 and wants to continue as the requests keep rolling in and as long as supplies last. 

She normally works as a secretary at Oak Hill High School but is using her hobby to help others. 

“I’m a firm believer that God gives us talents and that we should use those talents in times like these and also in just regular times,” Vance said. “I believe if you’re blessed, you should bless others.”

She is hoping to give these to local hospitals and healthcare workers. 

She wanted to share this link with others who are interested in making some themselves.
