Club Gets 25,000 Free N95 Masks for Community
Boys & Girls Clubs of Sheboygan County is one of several Clubs coordinating with the Wisconsin Office of Emergency Management to distribute almost half a million certified N95 masks statewide. Locally, the Club received over 25,000 masks to offer youth, families, nonprofits, and the general public through community pick up sites throughout the County.
Club CEO Christina Singh said that the organization is a practical way to get resources to those who need them, “Boys & Girls Clubs are safe spaces for kids during out of school time, and so much more. We are always eager to use our infrastructure to meet community needs.”
While supplies last, members of the public can pick up N95 masks at a number of sites:
- Boys & Girls Club in Sheboygan Falls, MEAD Library, Sheboygan YMCA, Paradigm Coffee & Music, The Hmong Mutual Assistance Association, SCIO Winter’s Farmer’s Market, John Michael Kohler Arts Center and others to be announced.
For information on getting free masks, contact the Club at email@example.com or reach out to one of the pickup sites directly.
According to Singh, a number of nonprofits have picked up a supply of free masks, including the Warming Center, RCS Empowers, Safe Harbor, Rocky Knoll Healthcare Center, Sheboygan County Interfaith Organization, Meals on Wheels, and more. Singh said the Club coordinated with Health and Human Services, who are also supplying masks locally.
“We’re glad to get this safety gear out to help our local nonprofits, and anyone in the community who would like masks. Thank you to Governor Tony Evers and WI Emergency Management for providing this resource at no cost, and to Bemis Manufacturing and the United Way of Sheboygan County for their help with logistics!”
