The Ladies of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College (LNDSMC), in partnership with Busy Hands of Michiana, Sew Loved Inc. and the Cathedral of St. James, made nearly 5,000 face masks for local students amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Founded in 1934, LNDSMC is a social organization for woman affiliated with the University of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College that promotes friendship, self-improvement, community involvement and social justice.

Along with Busy Hands and Sew Loved — local service organizations structured around sewing, knitting and other craft work — and the Cathedral of St. James, an Episcopal congregation in South Bend, the group sewed 4,675 face masks for K-12 students at 10 South Bend Community School Corp. (SBCSC) schools.

They also donated 800 lanyards to the schools for younger students, so the students don’t lose their masks.
