Several members of the Russellville Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) have made more than 100 masks and mask ear extensions to help combat the spread of coronavirus in Logan County. 

Nell Jordan made and distributed masks to family members who are health care providers at the Medical Center in Franklin, as well as friends in Logan County. 

Denise Shoulders made and distributed masks to the older population, including DAR members, that are at high risk. 

Darlynn Moore made mask ear extensions.  (People who wear masks with elastic that goes behind the ears, as opposed to ties, can develop sore irritated skin.  These extensions hook the elastic on the buttons to take the pressure off the ears.)

Jane Dodson made masks for family members and friends who work in healthcare settings in Oklahoma City.

“This is another way our chapter is supporting Americans in need,” said Chapter Regent Shelly Greene. “DAR members across the United States are participating in this effort with more than 56,000 masks made by members in Kentucky chapters and more than 100,000 made by members across the US.”

The Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 and is dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children. The Russellville Chapter was organized April 14,1924.
