Mount Union freshman Alyssa Kasaris (North Royalton) and her family have been making homemade masks for workers at the Cleveland Clinic to aid in their fight against COVID-19.
"We decided to do it because we have a family friend that works at the Cleveland Cinic who posted on Facebook a link asking for "people who can sew to do them" so my mom and I just decided to do it!," commented Kasaris.
The directions for making the mask came from the following link https://buttoncounter.com/2018/01/14/facemask-a-picture-tutorial/
Kasaris, a defensive specialist and Exercise Science major, played in all 30 matches in 2020 and led the team and fourth in the conference in digs with 541 for a Purple Raider team that went 20-10 overall.
"This is just an example of the kind of teammate and person that Alyssa is," stated Mount Union head coach and fellow North Royalton native Melissa Mahnke-Morrison. "When she sees something that needs done or someone that needs something, she is one of the first to step up."
