MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The United Way of Marquette County continuing its efforts to help the community. The organization’s latest project is to supply people with masks.

Saturday, October 24 in Marquette and Ishpeming, members will be handing out 23,000 masks, for free. They come in packs of five and can be picked up at the Peninsula Medical Center in Marquette and the Ace Hardware parking lot in Ishpeming. The masks can be picked up from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Saturday at both locations.

For the United Way, it’s just another opportunity to help keep the community safe.

“We’re looking at different ways to reach out to the community and just help fill the gaps or fill the needs that are unmet and masks are one of those things that we can do, there’s definitely a need and we want to keep the community safe,” said Andrew Rickauer, United Way of Marquette County Executive Director.

This is the second round of mask distribution by the United Way of Marquette County.
