WellSpan asks public to join 100 Million Mask Challenge

Mother and daughter pair Aubrey Sowers and Roxanne Miller have made about 2,000 face masks for the community.

WellSpan Health has joined the 100 Million Mask Challenge — a national initiative to meet demand for health care workers — and is asking the public to assist with making masks.

The American Hospital Association challenge calls on manufacturers, businesses and individuals to aid in producing disposable masks on a large scale.

"We’re asking our friends, neighbors, and community partners to come together to help us meet this challenge," WellSpan President and CEO Roxanna Gapstur said in a news release.
