The Grand Rapids African American Health Institute wants our community to be safe as we continue to navigate through COVID-19 so they will be having two events to hand out free face masks this week.

According to their Facebook, the free mask distributions will be held:

  • Monday, 5/4 4p-6p at Great Giant Supermarket (1226 Madison Ave SE)
  • Tuesday, 5/5 11a-1p at Family Fare (1225 Leonard St.)

The cloth masks will be given out on a first-come-first-serve basis, while supplies last. GRAAHI will be set up in the parking lots of both stores.

Masks are limited to one per person and three per household.

The African American Health Institute has more info on community events, best practices to follow before and after wearing your mask, and some great resources residents can utilize  here.
