In the past week, Renton’s Community Services Department has given away 12,000 free masks to residents in need.
Now that face coverings are mandatory statewide when in public, the city wanted to make sure everyone had access to them. A grant from King County helped the city purchase 20,000 masks, some of which were given to local businesses through the Renton Chamber of Commerce.
The rest are going to residents; families can line up in their cars Wednesday afternoons and Thursday mornings at the Renton Community Center to receive packs of 10 masks from Renton Community Services Department members, firefighters, elected leaders, and volunteers.
