United Way of the Brazos Valley distributes 11,000 free face masks
On Wednesday, July 15, United Way distributed approximately 11,000 face masks Wednesday morning.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - United Way of the Brazos Valley was back with more masks. After a successful first drive-thru distributing free face masks, the organization has decided to schedule another one.
The United Way distributed approximately 11,000 free face masks at Veterans Park Wednesday morning.
Surgical masks were donated by Brazos County Emergency Management and N95 masks were donated by Lowe’s Home Improvement. There were face masks that were leftover from the previous drive-thru as well.
The United Way says its mission remains the same as the needs of our community changes.
“The United Way is all about fighting for the needs in the community and right now the needs look like getting masks in the hands of people,” said President & CEO of United Way of the Brazos Valley, Alison Prince. “All of the science shows that masks are our best protection against coronavirus so we just want to empower people to wear those masks and keep themselves and their families safe.”
There are no plans for another face mask drive-thru at this point, but the United Way says that if they receive more donations, they would probably have one.
