EMS Cares: Sixth-Grader Helps Sew Masks and Headbands

You can spot sixth-grader Aubrey Daly’s home by the lawn sign she designed and displayed, thanking essential workers for their hard work. Inside the home, Aubrey and her mother, Jeannie, have also been hard at work, sewing masks and headbands for hospitals, care centers, and police departments in the Bergen County area, an initiative started by the Bergen Mask Task Force, a group associated with Bergen County Academies. 
In addition, Aubrey’s father, actor Michael Daly, has been making audiobooks for the pediatric unit at Mount Sinai, as there are restrictions on visiting the young patients there. He is also involved with The Morchand Center at Mount Sinai doctor training program, which is preparing future doctors for pandemics. 
"We are very grateful for our frontline healthcare and civil servants, our service workers, and EMS teachers and staff for helping us create the new normal," says Jeannie Daly. "We will get through this together."
