Your Extra Face Masks Needed Now

Everyone who comes to the Mission is screened, but we’re running low on personal protective gear for our screeners and staff to keep them safe from COVID-19.

The Mission’s Response Team has been working hard to obtain appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for our staff, especially those on the frontlines. We have been amazed by God’s provision for us in these difficult times and want to be good stewards of what He has provided. 

New Mask Protocol Enacted

Effective immediately, all front-line staff and volunteers, as well as students cleaning the Bethel Hotel and Chapel, will be required to wear masks while working. Staff and volunteers have been asked to wear them consistently and care for them as instructed.

Your help is needed now. If you have N95 or KN95 masks you can spare, please drop them off at the front desk at Men’s Campus as soon as you can.

We are also accepting hand-sewn masks, which are used over the N95 or KN95 masks to make them last longer. You can find patterns at:

Mask donations will be accepted Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Bethel Hotel front desk at the Men’s Campus, 435 University Ave. E., in St. Paul.
