A local Princeton business called The Patchwork Bear has been providing gowns and face masks for essential healthcare workers at local Capital Health hospitals.

The Patchwork Bear is a sewing studio that makes keepsakes out of customer's favorite clothing. Keepsakes include things like bears, quilts, and bags.

Then, on April 9 on Facebook, The Patchwork Bear posted that it had delivered 120 medical gowns to Capital Health,

On April 21, The Patchwork Bear decided to start selling face masks to get funds to continue to make masks that could be donated to essential workers.  Those masks quickly sold out, but The Patchwork Bear promises more will be coming soon.
