A woman in Iowa is using her gift of sewing to help others protect themselves amid the coronavirus pandemic.


In late March, Deb Siggins jumped into action and started sewing masks for health care workers after a local hospital, UnityPoint St. Luke’s, disclosed that they were experiencing a mask shortage, Good Morning America reported.

Around that time, Siggins, 55, said other people started to express interest in her designs, so she decided to make them available to her community at no cost through a tree outside her home.
