Collis said, “When there was a shortage of masks, Tina and her team stepped up night and day sewing masks. They made 4,000 masks.”  They also supplied to Abilities Plus and nursing homes. Galva residents donated donating elastic, fabric, thread and postage.  Masks were free to medical personnel, EMT’s , fire and police. Masks were sold to the general public for $5 and with that money, these ladies donated $2,611 to Galva’s Freedom Fest.
