Northwoods United Way to host face mask giveaway
The Northwoods United Way will be hosting a face mask packet giveaway 9-11 a.m. Thursday, May 21 at four area Associated Bank branches. The masks will be given out in quantities of 20, with one packet given to each car that comes to the distribution event until supplies run out.
“These face masks will give our populations another level of protection while shopping for essentials, getting fuel, and going to appointments,” said Nancy Sattler, executive director of the Northwoods United Way. “In addition, people that are heading back to work at their shops may want to pick up a packet for themselves or their employees.”
Masks will be available for pickup at Associated Banks in Crandon, Rhinelander, Eagle River and Minocqua. They are single use masks and are intended to be properly discarded after use. A best practices sheet will be included with each packet of masks.
“We are pleased to be able to offer this to our community members,” Sattler said. “The face masks will be handed out by masked United Way volunteers and the drivers don’t even need to get out of their cars to get the packet.”
Funding for the mask give-away is made possible by donations to the Northwoods United Way Covid-19 Community Response Fund. For more information, contact Sattler at 715-202-3344 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
