United Way receives masks donation
Greater Valdosta United Way received 35,000 reusable face masks from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to distribute throughout Berrien, Brooks, Echols, Lanier and Lowndes counties.
In efforts to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, the United Way office is giving the masks to school systems, colleges, nonprofits, churches, nursing homes, boards of election and local businesses, United Way representatives said in a statement. Congressman Earl L. “Buddy” Carter connected them with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
