SAG-AFTRA young performer Rosie Foss has been spending much of her free time working to keep her fellow members and community safe. Using her residuals check to purchase supplies, Foss has sewn more than 800 masks, half of which she has donated to local fire and police departments. She has given the other 400 masks to fellow SAG-AFTRA members, including personalized masks for President Gabrielle Carteris and L.A. Local officers and Board members.
But Foss isn’t done yet; she plans to keep going until she has made 1,000 masks. She said she finds helping others rewarding.
“I like making people happy. I try and help people stay safe. So please, stay home, and when you are outside, please keep a distance of at least 6 feet from each other. Wear masks. Cover your cough. Do what you can to help. COVID-19 is no joke,” she said. “Once this is over, I will be mega-hugging anyone and everyone.”
