PCC fashion program students thank donors with handmade masks

Pima College fashion design students created handmade masks to send as gifts to donors, nonprofits and first responders.

Students in Pima Community College’s fashion design program came up with a mask project to thank donors to the program.

The program recently received about $12,000 in private donations even though the annual FashionArte 2020 fundraiser in April was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a news release from the PCC Foundation.

So students in the fashion program, led by Nancy Spaulding, came up with the Thank You Mask Project that would create handmade masks to give as gifts for donations to the program. The students also made masks to donate to local nonprofit groups and first responders.

About 45 volunteers have spent about two months creating a variety of masks that were sent to people who donated money to the program – about 1,000 masks so far, according to the foundation.
