Our Brothers and Widows at the Masonic Home of Virginia need Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)!

Five (5) or more have already died from coronavirus (COVID-19) in our Masonic Home.

On April 2nd and again on April 21st our Home sent out letters asking for donations of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to include disposable gowns, N95 masks, surgical masks, and digital thermometer covers.

Under the "Designation" drop-down, select "PPE DONATIONS"

Brethren, I am the Masonic Home Ambassador for Masonic District No. 4, as you know some of the obligations we have as Freemasons are to support each other, and our Widows, I am asking all Lodges, and Brethren to support this worthy cause and help provide potentially life-saving PPE to our Brothers and Widows at our Masonic Home!

Thank you in advance for supporting our Masonic family at our "Crown Jewel of Masonry," the Masonic Home of Virginia.

William J. Baumbach II, PM.

Below is an update on my donation request from May 8, 2020.


On May 8th I requested donations so that PPE (masks) could be purchased for our Masonic Home of Virginia, I was hoping to get about $2,000 to purchase 1,000 masks, the response to my request for donations was phenomenal, it exceeded my expectations! We were able to purchase 1,550 masks, and also send $1,653.05 in cash to the Home so they could purchase additional PPE through their normal channels.

Thank you to all who helped make this happen!

The Home has acknowledge all who made a donation by either emailing, or mailing a letter to them.
