#MaskUpParaTuGente #MaskUpPlacer Deploys 80,000 Masks to Most At-Risk
A coordinated effort is underway to distribute free masks and care packages to thousands of families in Placer County. The distribution of masks, hand sanitizer and informational materials is happening at a critical time as cases rise, particularly among the most vulnerable. Outreach and delivery of the packages is focused on those living in high-density and multi-generational households, as well as people working on-site essential jobs.
The campaign partners supporting the effort include Lighthouse Family Resource Center, Latino Leadership Council, Placer People of Faith Together, Sierra Community House, Chapa-De Indian Health, and Evangelista Community Relations. Care packages are reaching residents through activities such as food distribution boxes and canvassing at 33 affordable housing complexes.
