If you don't have any plans this weekend, a local non-profit could use your help. 

AimHi - Prince George Association for Community Living is holding a "1,000 Masks Over The Easter Weekend" drive to help employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The association has 450 employees providing support to people in the community that are susceptible to serious effects from the virus. 

With the latest CDC recommendations and information that masks can possibly reduce the risk of exposure and slow the spread of COVID-19. 

"AiMHi has 25 volunteers getting started on these masks right now! If you have some time to give and want to support us with our goal there will be many grateful to you for your help!," the association said in an April 8 Facebook post. 

"This link to a mask pattern can be sewn from cotton sheets, it is quite easy to sew and fits well," the post adds. 

"If you need supplies, contact us on our Facebook page and we will arrange for you to receive the things you need to get started!"

In a second Facebook post yesterday (April 11) the association says masks are starting to pile up and asking anyone else still interested to contact them. 

"There are so many people in this community giving of their time and support to help their neighbours in whatever way they can. When people need someone to lean on, you step up! We are proud to be a part of this community."
