WNEM Partners with Saginaw Community for Free Mask Giveaway

WNEM-TV (Saginaw), along with the Saginaw Community Foundation, the Work Wear Store and other community partners helped to distribute 30,000 non-surgical masks for free on May 13.

“There’s some amazing, amazing volunteers out here today to help us prepare for an event taking place on Wednesday, May 13. But here today, what they’re doing is basically unloading boxes of 30,000 masks,” said Renee Johnston, with the Saginaw Community Foundation.

A special Take 5 to Care event is putt free non-surgical face masks into the possession of all who needed them, while supplies remained.

The giveaway took place from 5 to 7 p.m.  at Heritage High School, St. Charles high School, the Dow Event Center and Claytor Head Start.

“Well, it’s important to the community because of course, they are free. And not everyone is able to get out and get a mask,” said Talia Brown, with the Freeland Sports Zone.
