FREE KN95 MASKS FOR DISTRIBUTION IN NORTHWEST MICHIGAN

United Way of Northwest Michigan (UWNWMI) and Area Agency on Aging of Northwest Michigan (AAANM) will be distributing KN95 masks to Antrim, Benzie, Emmet, Kalkaska and Grand Traverse Counties. We are grateful to the State of Michigan for helping us to secure KN95 masks for community distribution to area seniors and others who may benefit.


Below are the dates and times of drive-up for the counties listed below: 

Emmet
Date: Tuesday, February 2nd
Time: 9am – 3pm (or until masks are gone)
Location: Emmet County Fairgrounds, 1129 Charlevoix Ave., Petoskey, MI 49770

Kalkaska
Date: Saturday, February 20th 
Time: 10am – 2pm (or until masks are gone)
Location: Birch Street Elementary School, 309 N Birch St. Kalkaska, MI 49646

Grand Traverse
Date: Thursday, February 4th
Time: 9am – 3pm (or until masks are gone)
Location: Turtle Creek Stadium, 333 Stadium Drive, Traverse City, MI 49685

Distribution will be ten masks per person, per vehicle, with a maximum of 50 per vehicle, with drive-up delivery of masks. The mask distribution will end at the times above or until all masks have been distributed, whichever is first. For the safety of our volunteers, we ask that all persons in their vehicles wear a mask.

“As vaccination efforts are underway and as reopening is on the horizon, we must not lose focus. Now more than ever, wearing a mask, washing our hands, and maintaining social distance can help us as a community beat COVID-19,” said Seth Johnson, President of UWNWMI.

“We are grateful to the State of Michigan for helping us to secure KN95 masks for community distribution to area seniors and others who may benefit,” said Heidi Gustine, Executive Director of AAANM.
