The Sarasota Manatee Community Response Team (SMCRT) is a 501(c)3 Florida Non-profit Corporation that developed out of the desire to help stop the spread of COVID19 in our local community at the beginning of the pandemic. Our initial service project brought together a team of volunteer fabricators and transporters, a supply management facility, and a leadership team to fabricate cloth masks, surgical wrap masks, surgical caps, and ear savers for 13,000 members of our community.
