Bridal shop helping out during pandemic by making masks

'We want to do what we can.'

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. — In Peachtree City,  J. Andrew's Bridal is feeling the sting of the pandemic as they enter the busiest season of the year. 

However, store manager Sarah Heath said they found a way to help in the fight against COVID-19 by turning their garment bags into masks.

 "Our owner discovered that medical masks are made out of the same material that our garment bags are made out of," which is non woven polypropylene. 

"A lot of our brides are nurses," she said. "It means a lot to us and we want to do what we can," she said.

J. Andrew's Bridal is partnering with local hospitals and medical facilities to distribute the masks. They are sending their first batch out this week.
