TFTV Costume Students Make Masks for Health Care Workers
A group of students in the University of Arizona School of Theatre, Film & Television is doing its part to address the shortage of masks for health care workers in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. MFA students Rachel Wilkins, Elizabeth Eaton and Ryan B. Moore are working on the initiative alongside Maryan Trombino-Arthur, manager of the school’s Costume Shop. The group has provided masks to Banner – University Medical Center Tucson, which has distributed them to its trauma team, intensive care unit and other departments. The school also has been contacted by the Pima County Sheriff’s Department and the Tucson Police Department Emergency Response Team, as well as multiple assisted living communities, veterinarian’s offices and others with requests for masks.
