Face masks sewn for graduating seniors

When Lake County’s high school graduates cross the stage in ceremonies across the district, each will be provided a souvenir face mask decorated with their school colors and mascots, sewn by a team of local volunteers.

The project was led by L.A.S.E.R. (Lake Support and Emergency Recovery), a nonprofit organization founded in 2004 to help the county recover from disasters through a coordinated community-wide approach.

A team of 45 volunteers from Real Life Christian Church in Clermont sewed more than 3,000 masks while the Education Foundation of Lake County and the Lake County Sheriff’s Charities provided the financial support.
