ANAHEIM, Calif. (Sept. 17, 2020) — Residents can get free face masks without leaving their car at Anaheim’s third drive-thru mask distribution event on Saturday, Sept. 26 from 8 a.m. to noon at Temple Beth Emet, 1770 W. Cerritos Ave.
Each Anaheim family will receive one pack of single-use, disposable masks until supplies run out, plus some other great giveaways.
At our first two events, we served nearly 1,500 Anaheim families.
The event is part of Anaheim’s Community and Economic Recovery Plan, through which the city has allocated $36 million to community and business relief and other coronavirus resources.
In this plan, the City Council dedicated $1 million toward added personal protective equipment and COVID-19 testing for the community.
Anaheim requires a mask or face covering when out in public and especially when not able to keep six feet of distance from others.
As Orange County moves toward a gradual reopening, masks play an even more important role in keeping our city healthy and continuing to stem the spread of coronavirus.
The mask giveaways also coincide with National Preparedness Month and are part of our efforts to promote preparedness among Anaheim residents in any emergency situation.
