An effort to ensure that all children will have a mask or face covering when they return to school this fall begins Saturday with a mask collection at the Town Toyota Center.
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., volunteers can drop off masks. There is a need for masks of all sizes but especially medium.
Organizers are asking that the masks be in a ziplock bag with a label identifying their size.
The event is being sponsored by Columbia Valley Community Health, Serve Wenatchee Valley and the Eastmont and Wenatchee school districts.
The masks will be distributed at a back-to-school health fair in August.
Details on the masks and Saturday event are available on the Columbia Valley Community Health website.
Included is a link to a video tutorial on making masks.
