Making Face Shields for Local Healthcare Professionals

CCLD Makerspace is making face shields for our local hospitals to assist our local healthcare professionals fighting on the front lines against COVID-19.

Thank you to the many volunteers who have helped us make face shields over the last two weeks. We have made over 3,800 face shields and have delivered over 2,300 to local hospitals, first responders, and nursing homes. We are switching from making the foam and velcro style to 3D printed face shields in partnership with other makers in the community.


Sign up to 3D print shield parts from home, volunteer to assemble face shields, or sew masks (fabric provided).
