NEMCSA is YOUR Community Action Agency; helping people change lives, to embody the spirit of hope, improving communities and making America a better place to live. We care about the entire community and are dedicated to helping people help themselves and others. 

Join us in celebrating May as Community Action Month! There are several reasons why May is dedicated to Community Action and the estimated 1,000 Community Action Agencies in the United States. 

We believe that generosity has the power to unite and heal communities in good times and bad. A global threat like COVID-19 touches every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together as a global community.

This special day of unity and giving presents an opportunity to come together and support communities and nonprofits around the world. Whether it’s advocating for an issue you’re passionate about, sharing a skill, helping a neighbor, or giving to important causes, every act of kindness makes a difference.

Due to a worldwide shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE), NEMCSA is asking for community support to sew cloth masks for our employees and volunteers that are assisting your neighbors during the pandemic. 

There have been many questions regarding hand-sewn masks including what is being accepted, material shortages, and sanitation procedures. At this time, NEMCSA is accepting donations of any style, pattern, or design. Ensuring fabric is tightly-woven, breathable and can be secured appropriately to the face is most important. 

We are extremely grateful for the support we have already received from our communities.  Your donation of homemade items will help ensure the safety of hundreds of NEMCSA staff and volunteers during the pandemic. 

If you have questions regarding homemade masks, please reach out to the NEMCSA by phone at 989-358-4600 or email at contact@nemcsa.org
