WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. (WKBW) — Christina Timblin owns a photography business and a sewing business, but with those shut down due to COVID-19, she has turned her attention to making masks for first responders, doctors and nurses fighting coronavirus on the front lines.

"I got a really good response" Timblin said, "I have had over 200 requests."

Timblin, whose husband is a police officer, is making the masks for free and giving them to anyone who needs it in their fight against COVID-19.

The fabric has come from her personal stash, and if anyone wants to donate fabric to help her, she takes woven cotton fabric for the masks.
