Although socially isolated due to coronavirus, a collection of volunteers connected
to Oklahoma State University have united to sew more than 27,500 face masks for healthcare
workers and others across the state of Oklahoma – and the work is ongoing.
The ultimate mission for Oklahoma Home and Community Education Inc. is to help members
be well-informed and able to handle changes in their homes and communities. OHCE members
and master volunteers from the Family and Consumer Sciences unit of OSU Extension
have shown the entire state just how well-equipped they are to handle change. In years
to come, when the country looks back on this challenging period, OSU Extension will
be a shining example of volunteerism.
