Milpitas Senior Check

This program will also end as of June 12. Thank you for all the willing volunteers.

Make Masks

As the updated recommendation is that everyone should wear a mask, you can help make cloth masks. Here is a tutorial on how to make them. You can make some for your family, and then donate any extras. And, please, if you have N95 masks that you can donate, please do so.

For donations to Kaiser, email MIchelle here,

Also, our Milpitas Fire Department (MFD) is looking for cloth masks or N95 masks. To donate, drop them off at:

Fire Station 1, 777 S. Main Street.

And, you can join in JoAnn stores's goal of making and donating 100 million masks.

Give Blood

“We need people to start turning out in force to give blood.” That urgent call-to-action coming from Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D., director of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, as fear about the coronavirus is keeping people from wanting to donate blood.
