FARRELL, Pa. (WKBN) – Since many Pennsylvania businesses are allowed to reopen under the yellow phase, there are restrictions they have to follow. That includes having employees and customers wear face masks.

One group in Mercer County is making sure everybody has one. 

Let’s Make Masks provided masks to people in Sharon and Farrell Saturday morning. Dozens of volunteers sewed more than 4,000 face masks and helped pass them out. 

Event organizer Amy Clark said people of all ages and experience sewing helped make the event a success.

The group has made nearly 25,000 masks so far and doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. They already have another event planned for next weekend in Mercer.┬áDetails on that event will be announced at a later time.
