Masks Benefit Colleagues and Shelter Residents in Southwest Missouri
All it took was a Facebook post from the Moss House Shelter in Nevada, Missouri, for Corteva Agriscience territory manager Kylee Nodine to jump into action. She dusted off her sewing machine, found some fabric scraps in the basement, and sourced enough elastic to make masks for the women seeking refuge from domestic abuse.
“Hotline calls tripled during March at the Moss House Shelter,” said Martha Sanders, owner of the facility in Nevada, Missouri, which provides housing for victims of domestic abuse and their children. “The masks enabled our residents to work and shop, while reducing cross-contamination at the shelter. These acts of kindness have great returns.”
In addition to supporting the community, Kylee also made masks for her coworkers and customers who are busy in the field ensuring #Plant20 is successful. “I was happy to contribute whatever I could to keeping us all safe,” Kylee said.
