Chicago Tribune columnist, Rex Huppke reached out to his readers on Twitter, Facebook using the hashtag #PandemicPals, and in his column on March 23, 2020. Through his readers and followers Rex set up a network of volunteers who write letters/postcards to isolated seniors and individuals with disabilities.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, several volunteers stepped up to sew masks for the 65 Center of Concern Senior Companion Volunteers. The average age of the Senior Companions is 75 so the masks were sewn in accordance with the recommendation of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) that everyone should wear a mask when having to go outside for essential business.
