As the nation struggles with the shortage of PPE gowns for Frontline workers, Fashion Girls For Humanity has partnered with Humans From Home, bringing you their MadeByUS kit now available for purchase here.
The MadeByUS kit allows individuals to purchase materials to make PPE isolation gowns from their homes for themselves or community members in need.
Each kit comes with pre-cut isolation gown panels made from non-woven breathable waterproof material that meets AAMI Level 1 & 2 standards, hook and loop trims from YKK for closures, belt trim, and easy to follow assembly instructions.
FGFH strives to empower communities to be able to support and serve their local Frontliners obtain the PPE they need during the current health crisis.

This is How You Can Help--Mary's Story
Mary McRae who is a retired Home Ec teacher from Montana (right in photo) reached out to us and said she wanted to help because she can sew. We matched her sewing skill with the need of Family Medicine Residency of Idaho. She made gowns from precut materials sent from us and donated finished gowns to FMRI.
And here's the letter from FMRI:
Our beautiful gift of gowns has arrived and we are so very thankful to you for your kindness and efforts. The gowns are top notch – wow! We absolutely love the material you used and the fit is also great.
They will definitely be helpful in keeping our physicians, nurses and other staff that come in direct contact with COVID-19 patients safe and virus free. We can’t thank you enough for your donation. We wish you the best of health.
