BLUFFTON, S.C. (WSAV) – A Bluffton woman has made over 1,000 masks and friends say “she’s still sewing!”
Lenore Banks nominated her friend Debbie Deacon for WSAV’s “Our Heroes” for her mask-making efforts.
Banks says Deacon immediately took to the task after COVID-19 became a local threat, sewing masks for her friends, neighbors and firefighters.
Deacon sent a note out to her neighborhood taking orders, only asking for donations of supplies in return.
Banks says her dear friend recently made special masks for the Bluffton Fire Department — 150 to be exact.
“If she is not a hero, I don’t know who is!” Banks wrote.
