Mask donation’s goal to keep kids in school during pandemic


WASHINGTON (WEEK) - A school in Washington received a special delivery Wednesday from some Tazewell County Sheriff's deputies.

The officers delivered a donation of about 75,000 face masks to Beverly Manor school.

Principal Corey Sharp said the donation will make it easier to keep everyone safe and keep kids in the classroom instead of having to work from home.

The masks come from a partnership between the Tazewell County Sheriff's Office and Ford Motor Company as part of Ford's #FinishStrong initiative.

"It's going to be great to have a supply for our kids, and not have to worry about if they're coming to school with a prepared mask or a fresh mask," said Sharp.

"We'll just automatically be able to give them the resources they need," the principal added.

"The sheriff's office knows the importance of keeping our students in school and the struggle our local school districts face to obtain the necessary supplies to do so," the sheriff's department said in a news release.
