By WVUA 23 Contributor Joshua Ragsdale

The United Way of West Alabama is ensuring anyone who needs face masks has them with giveaways. Their latest happened Thursday, Aug. 13.

The organization handed out reusable cloth masks. President and CEO of United Way Jackie Wuska said that the event was all about being there for each other in the community.

“At United Way our mission is health, income stability, and education and a big part of being safe these days is to have a mask and a quantity of masks,” said Wuska. “And so United Way was able to acquire a large quantity of masks that we could share with the public. Especially with school starting back, we want everyone to have what they need to be safe and healthy in our community.”

Leftover masks from the event event will be distributed throughout West Alabama to communities that need them.
