In this moment, there is a critical need for personal protective equipment, or PPE, and FIT alumni are leading a nationwide volunteer project to produce and deliver hospital-grade masks for frontline workers in the COVID-19 battle. To date, more than 6,500 masks have been made by FIT alumni, students and friends. The project, called Sew4Lives, was founded by FIT alumni in New York State and now operates as a network out of more than 20 states.


Sew4Lives

FIT alumni have launched Sew4Lives, a national network of volunteers organized to sew hospital-grade masks, initially for St. Joseph’s Health in Syracuse, St. Peter’s Hospital in Albany, Glen Cove Hospital and St. Francis Hospital in Long Island, Staten Island University Hospital, and Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan. Sew4Lives was organized by FIT alumni Caroline Berti and Karen Sabag, both Fashion Design ’07. Alumni, students, and friends of FIT and SUNY have already joined the program under the direction of the two graduates and have established teams in multiple regions across New York, in addition to supporting national groups in more than 20 states.
