The YMCA Delivers Half a Million Face Masks
In Pandemic Times the Y Helps Our Neighbors Stay Safe
When the North Sound Accountable Community of Health announced access to free masks, the YMCA stepped up offering the staff and transportation to deliver them. For the past few weeks, YMCA vans have been at hospitals, docks, ports, small businesses, schools and more.
Loading bags of 50 masks, as well as boxes of 500 or 900 masks, the Y’s vans were sometimes packed floor to ceiling and Y staff were eternally grateful for Google maps on their phones. Friday, October 9th, the storage site was moved from a Bellingham church to a facility in LaConner, where the masks will be stored until more deliveries are scheduled. Our team was happy to work with the NSACH and deliver 571,500 masks over the past few weeks!
