Where to Donate Homemade Masks Around Northeast Ohio

Homemade Masks - Northeast Ohio - Cutler Real Estate

Let's be honest — these last few weeks have been tough on everyone.

To say that COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, has disrupted life around the world is an understatement. Within a matter of weeks, our everyday lifestyles were completely altered in unprecedented ways — so much so that the CDC recommends that all men, women, and children wear protective masks over their mouth and nose when leaving the house. This is, understandably, a scary reality for all of us, but it's an especially frightening way of life that our essential workers have to adopt.

At Cutler Real Estate, we want to support our family members, friends, neighbors, and service workers in the communities throughout Northeast Ohio in any way we can. One way that we can unite and proactively slow the spread of coronavirus is to make, wear, and donate homemade masks. You can make these masks from many items that you already have in your home. Let's go over a few ways that you can make these masks at home, why you can protect yourself by wearing them in public, and how do donate these masks and other vital medical supplies to facilities around Northeast Ohio.

Why Make & Wear Homemade Masks?

A post shared by Mercy Medical Center Canton (@cantonmercy) on

Sadly, there are thousands of confirmed coronavirus cases in Ohio. Until widespread accessibility to testing, more effective treatment options, and a better understanding of the virus itself become a reality, we need to take every opportunity we can to slow the spread. This means practicing social distancing by staying in our homes as much as possible and always wearing a protective mask whenever we leave home.

Although the virus itself is microscopic and can pass through most face coverings, the virus often attaches itself to water molecules that come out of our noses and mouths when we sneeze or cough. Many types of fabric can effectively contain most of these molecules, which means any type of face covering is better than none at all.

While officials ask that all non-medical personnel refrain from purchasing the N95 surgical masks and procedure masks so that our healthcare workers who come in contact with this virus on a daily basis have access to them, the CDC encourages all individuals to make their own face masks. Currently, JOANN fabric and craft stores across the nation have free tools, supplies, and guidance available for anyone wanting to make masks. Many other businesses and organizations around Northeast Ohio are also providing supplies to those who want to join the effort and support the community.

A post shared by Rust Belt Flannels (@rustbeltflannels) on

There are two ways that you can make a homemade mask, the first of which is to sew one. Here are the abridged UH-approved steps to make your own (full directions and materials needed available at this link).

  • Step 1: Print out a pattern (composed of A and B pieces) and cut them out on paper. Place these paper cut-outs on the fabric and cut out two of the A and two of the B.

  • Step 2: Align both A pieces together and sew the pattern together with ¼" seam. Repeat for the B pieces.

  • Step 3: Sew the exterior piece of the mask to the interior piece of the mask.

  • Step 4: Thread a sturdy wire like a pipe cleaner or paperclips underneath your stitching.

  • Step 5: Insert a fabric tie and secure it with stitching.

  • Step 6: Insert a filter material such as a coffee filter into the center of the mask between the fabrics.  

How to Make a Homemade Mask Without Sewing

An alternative way that you can make a mask is with a simple pair of scissors. While you can use any fabric on-hand, it's suggested that you use at least two layers of cotton. A bandana, old shirt, or pillowcase are good options. You can fold and tie these fabrics around your face, with or without a filter inserted into the center. You can also cut out ear holes or use ties, rubber bands, or other straps to secure it around your face.

Ideally, this fabric will completely cover your face from the bridge of your nose down underneath your chin. It shouldn't restrict your breathing or speaking, but it must be thick enough to prevent water molecules from passing through the fabric. Please also remember to refrain from touching the front of your mask as that could place your hands in contact with the virus, which you could potentially spread to other parts of your face or to others you come in contact with.

Why You Should Make & Donate Homemade Masks

A post shared by Summa Health (@summahealth) on

You have the option of either disposing of your mask or washing it in the washing machine for safe reuse. If you're social distancing, you'll ideally only need to wear your mask a limited number of times throughout our quarantine. Unfortunately, our healthcare workers are constantly exposed to potentially infected patients which means their supply usage is drastically higher.

Believe it or not, healthcare workers in Ohio will use 13 N95 face masks, 14 protective gowns, and 36 pairs of medical gloves while caring for a patient in the Intensive Care Unit over a 24-hour period. As potential new coronavirus cases continue to rise, as well as the daily need for medical care not associated with the virus, our healthcare workers will need more masks than ever before.

There are dozens of medical facilities around the area that desperately need masks. Here are a few that you can send homemade masks and other supplies to right now:

  • Summa Health System is in need of homemade masks, which can be delivered to their Corporate Office or mailed to their Volunteer Office.

  • University Hospitals in need of masks and other medical supplies that can be mailed in or dropped off at various UH locations. Many UH locations also have mask-making materials available for pick-up. They are also sourcing corporate materials and manufacturing capabilities that can be arranged via email.  

  • Akron's Children's Hospital is in need of homemade masks, donations of which can be arranged through email.

  • Cleveland Clinic is in need of medical supply donations which can be dropped off at curbside delivery sites throughout Northeast Ohio.

  • Mercy Medical Center is in need of medical equipment donations and cleaning supplies which can be arranged for donation through the Mercy Supply Chain department.

  • Aultman Health Foundation is running low on all Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and is asking for donations of PPE, materials to create masks, and seamstress assistance in creating the masks. Donations can be arranged on their website.

In This Together

If you know of any other healthcare or frontline facilities that need masks or other vital medical supplies for their essential workers, please tell us in the comments below.

Northeast Ohio: Stark County Is a Walk in the Park

Stark County Parks - Walking Trails - Cutler Real Estate

Are you feeling cooped up at home and need a bit of fresh air? Take advantage of Stark County's beautiful outdoor spaces and go for a relaxing walk. We're surrounded by picturesque trails that offer unspoiled areas where we can clear our heads and forget about life for a while. Spend a few hours strolling these Northeast Ohio walking trails and parks.

West Branch Trail

1305 Stadium Park Dr. NW, Canton, OH 44708

The West Branch Trail, running along the West Branch of the Nimishillen Creek, is a fantastic trail to walk if you want to get up close and personal with a few Stark County landmarks. This trail is just under four-and-a-half miles long and connects to seven parks, including what once was Mother Goose Land and Covered Bridge Park. Great for running, biking, hiking, or walking your dog the West Branch Trail

Congressman Ralph Regula Towpath Trail Park

Lake Lucerne Trailhead, 7975 Erie Ave. NW, Canal Fulton, OH 44614

While you may not want to walk the full 25 miles of the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail, you can explore the Congressman Ralph Regula trail at one of 14 trailheads. We suggest taking on the Canal Fulton northern section at the Lake Lucerne Trailhead. This trailhead offers a convenient place to park and walk then cast a line when your return.

Devonshire Park and Trail

4679 South Blvd. NW, Canton, OH 44718

Get off of the beaten path and get close to wildlife at the Devonshire Park and Trail. This trail extends only a little longer than a half of a mile and runs on mowed grass to offer an easy opportunity for wildlife viewing and birdwatching. Fishing is also permitted at this park, but these conservation lands are also great for children to enjoy with their parents.

Hoover Trail

Hoover Community Recreational Complex, 1325 E. Maple St., North Canton, OH 44720

Although the recreation complexes may be unavailable, you can still find plenty of space to roam on the Hoover Trail. Park at the Hoover Community Recreational Complex and walk along the 5-mile trail that connects with other areas of the Hoover District. Animal sightings are common along this trail during all seasons, so be sure to take it slow and keep your eyes open!

Mahoning Valley Trail

A post shared by Suzette (@sbarstow922) on

If you've ever wanted to get a closer look at the Mahoning River, head over to the Mahoning Valley Trail. You can start your hike on this scenic trail at the Deer Creek Reservoir and enjoy a 4-mile walk over boardwalks, bridges, and along the Mahoning River. There are a few picnic areas around the trailhead as well where you can have lunch as well.

Nickel Plate Trail

2923 Pinevale Ave. NE, Louisville, OH 44641

The Nickel Plate Trail is a great mix of urban and rural landscapes. Stretching four miles with its recently added section, most of this trail is unpaved gravel or unimproved natural surface, making it a little more of a challenge than a typical stroll would entail. There are often horses on the trail, and with private property surrounding much of the area, it's best to remain on the trail and stay visible to other passersby.

Pioneer Trail

2600 Harvard Ave. NW, Canton, OH 44709

Another small trail in the Canton area, the Pioneer Trail is just over one-mile long and takes hikers towards the campus of Malone University. Unlike some of the flatter trails of the area, the Pioneer Trail features inclines and declines throughout, making it a good trail for runners, more active hikers, and bikers.

Sandy Valley Trail and Waynesburg Park Loop Trail

For those who would like to get a few laps in, the Waynesburg Park Loop Trail is perfect. Short and sweet, this trail circles the park. You can add three-quarters-of-a-mile to your exercise by walking the Sandy Valley Trail.

Sippo Valley Trail

A much longer trail that connects to the Towpath Trail, the Sippo Valley Trail stretches ten miles. It begins as an asphalt trail but does transition to limestone farther down. You'll walk parallel to Sippo Creek, and most of the trail is relatively flat, offering a simple but long trek between the trailheads.

Iron Horse Trail

1141 W. Beech St., Alliance, OH 44601

Once a railroad right-of-way, the Iron Horse Trail now offers four-and-a-half miles of biking and hiking space for people and their pets. With a trailhead at the First Christian Church and an adjacent neighborhood, the Iron Horse Trail is convenient for Alliance families to access.

Cook's Lagoon and Trail

1819 Mahoning Road NE, Canton, OH 44705

Cook's Lagoon is a popular fishing hole, but it's a nice walking trail with benches and an easy walk for those who want to stroll at their own pace.

Get your fill of trails at Molly Stark Park. In the process of becoming a 35-acre park with hiking trails, gardens, and plenty of outdoor space to explore, Molly Stark Park is a great place to find fresh air close to home. Be sure to research the history and mysteries of the Molly Stark Park building to understand why it was a significant hospital for the treatment of Tuberculosis.

Promoting Your Home Online Amidst Social Distancing

Virtual Home Tours & Open Houses - Cutler Real Estate

With stay-at-home directives and social distancing in place, the real estate market needs to get creative with facilitating the buying and selling of homes. Cutler Real Estate is doing just that by offering virtual open houses that allow sellers to showcase their properties online and enable buyers to get an inside look at homes for sale—all while complying with efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Learn more about virtual showings and open houses, how your home is marketed online, and ways to get your home ready for the best results.

What Is a Virtual Showing?

Our Realtors now have the ability to offer a "Tour via Video Chat" request option to your online listing. Buyers are afforded the convenience of choosing a date and time to view the home via Skype, Zoom, Google Duo, or WhatsApp. Once the request is submitted, the Realtor will contact the interested buyer to confirm the virtual showing.

Virtual Showing Request - Cutler Real Estate

At the appointed time, the Realtor will connect with the interested buyers via their preferred video app and provide them with a tour of the home and property in real time. This method allows all interested parties to maintain social distancing, while still giving buyers a detailed look at the home.

What Is a Virtual Open House?

A virtual open house essentially moves a traditional, in-person open house online. Your Realtor captures your property and home interior via video, then promotes that video presentation via Facebook or YouTube.

This format allows your Realtor to showcase the best features of not just your home but your property and neighborhood as well. The video presentation can highlight street views, an open-concept layout, a finished basement, and a remodeled kitchen. Your virtual tour can also shine a spotlight on sought-after outdoor areas, such as a pool, outbuilding, or patio.

Virtual open houses also offer buyers and sellers convenience. For sellers, your Realtor can schedule a video session at your convenience with minimal, if any, social contact. In turn, homebuyers can watch a virtual open house when it premieres on Facebook or YouTube, or they can choose to watch it online at a later time.

How Is My Virtual Open House Promoted Online?

The next step is promoting your virtual open house, and this is where Facebook and YouTube come into play. Your Realtor will prepare a 15- to 20-minute presentation from video footage of your property, then upload it to either YouTube or Facebook. Both platforms utilize "premiere" features to allow for the scheduling of a video "go-live" date.

Once added to YouTube, your virtual open house will feature a countdown to the premiere of the video. Your Realtor will then promote the virtual open house via Facebook and other social media platforms to generate interest in the event. Premiering the virtual open house video on Facebook is similar and allows your Realtor to easily promote the video presentation to a targeted audience.

Once a virtual open house video is uploaded, your home's listing page will feature a virtual open house link at the top in red, further showcasing the upcoming presentation.

Virtual Open House - Cutler Real Estate


During the premiere of the virtual open house video on YouTube or Facebook, your Realtor will have the opportunity to interact with commenters in real time, answering any questions they have on your home. Potential buyers will appreciate the ability to communicate with the Realtor, as well as the opportunity to see a property without leaving their home.

How Should I Get My Home Ready?

Just as you would with an in-person open house or showing, you should thoroughly clean your home from top to bottom, including areas such as closets, pantry, and laundry room. A virtual open house includes all aspects of your property, so you'll need to make sure the outside looks as spotless as the inside.

A virtual open house video provides your Realtor with a way to focus on the "wow" factor your home offers. Whether it's a great home office or an updated kitchen, be sure to spend extra time preparing those areas.

Once everything is video ready inside and out, use this checklist on the day of the video shoot:

Interior

  • Turn on all lighting, including under-cabinet lighting in the kitchen.
  • Make sure televisions are turned off, and cords are out of sight.
  • Open curtains to let in natural light.
  • Pull blinds to the same height.
  • Do one last sweep around the house to clear away any clutter.

Exterior

  • Limit seasonal decorations.
  • Ensure any outdoor furniture is clean.
  • Put the trash can out of sight.
  • Pull any stray weeds.
  • Park vehicles away from the house to clear the driveway and garage.

Interested in buying a home in Northeast Ohio, Columbus, or Cincinnati? Browse our listings today and look for the virtual tour option on individual listing pages. To showcase your home for sale via a virtual showing or open house, contact your Cutler Real Estate Realtor to get started today.
