People all over the country, and all over Roberts County want to help in any way they can in this war against the novel coronavirus. In World War II, people knitted socks; for this war, they are making masks for those on the front lines, and for the vulnerable. They will keep making masks as long as there is a need.

Local ladies, unbeknownst to each other, have set up Facebook pages to help provide the local needs, including “We Can Do It – Mask It!” and “Mask Up Sisseton Community.”
