Free cloth masks available Saturday in Nevada City
Free reusable cloth face masks designed to protect individuals from the coronavirus were handed out for the second time on Saturday July 11 at Dave’s Auto Repair in Nevada City. The event is a joint effort with the Rotary Club of Nevada City and a group of sewers who call themselves “Mask Warriors Unite.” Masks have been donated by Nevada County Mask Warriors Unite and ZipsFaceMask.com.
Hundreds of masks were handed out to grateful residents. Dave’s Auto Repair is located at 747 Zion St. in Nevada City. Community members were able to stay in their cars and drive through the parking lot. Our community generously donated over $370 which will help NC Masks to make over 700 more masks. Keep passing them on!
This event was a repeat of the very-popular Free COVID Mask Give Away the groups hosted in June. The Mask Warriors volunteer their time and expertise to make reusable cloth masks. Materials are from the sewers’ personal supply or purchased with donations from the community, which are encouraged.
