Health care heroes: Wanting to keep others safe
You don’t have to have superb sewing skills to help out.
“All I wanted to do was keep my coworkers safe, and if making masks would help, then I was going to do it,” says Jaclyn Karbon, physical therapist assistant of 15 years at Aurora Sports Health in Manitowoc, Wis. “I am not the best at sewing, and it may have taken me longer than others, but I didn’t care. I just wanted to do something to help.”
With a lot of fabric, heart and determination, Karbon made 60 or more cloth masks for family, friends, and mainly team members to wear when not at work.
“She sprang into action in sewing very beautifully crafted and trendy-looking cloth masks for numerous staff members of our department,” says Karbon’s supervisor Karen Schultz. “Because of her positive relationships across our four locations, numerous staff were grateful to receive her gift!”
