Lakeside Nail Salon Making Thousands of Masks for Community

Nail salons have been closed for weeks, but one in Lakeside is using this time to do something pretty great -- its workers are making masks for whoever may need one.

NBC 7 has been featuring people throughout our community doing great things and making an effort to help others during this pandemic, and Crystal’s Nails & Spa in Lakeside is helping in a big way.

Workers started sewing masks for a coworker’s sister who is a nurse but then realized this was something they could do to help their community, as well.

They’re now waiting in line to get fabric and supplies, and spending countless hours making masks for others to help keep everybody safe and healthy.

They’ve made masks for area hospitals and health care workers, firefighters, police officers, daycare centers, grocery store and restaurant workers; anyone who needs one.

“We are all in this together, as one big fight. It’s a little gesture of appreciation to the community because they’ve been supporting us all these years,” Paul Vo of Crystal’s Nails & Spa told NBC 7.

The masks are free and are made by volunteers who are paying for all the supplies. They’ve made thousands of facial coverings so far.

Anyone interested in helping or donating fabric, supplies or extra sewing machines can go to:
