Portsmouth, NH – TFMoran’s seacoast division manager and a principal of the company, Corey Colwell, LLS, is proud to share some positive and personal news amid this COVID-19 pandemic.
His wife, Dahriz Colwell, has been busy at her sewing machine creating masks that she donates to help keep people safe during the pandemic. Dahriz has now created over 40 assorted colors and patterns of masks to choose from and has made over 350 masks since she started this initiative in early March.
The masks are hand-wash and air-dry only because of the interfacing filter material in the middle. Not only has Dahriz supplied her husband’s Portsmouth office staff with enough masks, but also the TFMoran corporate office in Bedford, N.H.
Dahriz continues to set up a table in their neighborhood for anyone who would like a free mask. Though her masks are offered at no cost, many of their neighbors have generously donated more than $400 so far, and TFMoran has made a $500 contribution to her cause.
Dahriz’s cause is very special and dear to her heart, and by making these masks she is bringing awareness of her cause to others who want to help.
Dahriz’s hometown village in the Philippines desperately needs help to feed their struggling families during this pandemic. By creating a GoFundMe page called “Help the Hunger,” Dahriz hopes this will be an easy way for people to make a donation.
“We are very fortunate to be living in a good town, safe state and country that provide for those in need. I feel blessed,” says Dahriz. “There are areas of the world not so fortunate. My hometown of Mangagoy Bislig, Philippines is a good example. The town and most of the country is shut down; no work and little to no government help.
We are organizing a fundraiser to help feed those less fortunate than us. 100% of all proceeds will go to feed the hungry and their struggling families. Any amount you can contribute to this cause is greatly appreciated.”
Dahriz has all the support of her family and friends in her efforts of making a difference in people’s lives during these challenging times. “I think this a great cause, I am proud of her for all that she has done,” says her husband, Corey. “Since we were married 16 years ago, she has been helping her village in any way that we can afford. This is the hardest they have been hit in a long time.” Even their 5-year-old son, Tristan is happy to help, from setting up the mask display table in the neighborhood, to cutting fabric and even a little sewing. Every little bit helps to make a difference.
