United Way of Freeborn County Pop-Up pantry & mask distribution day information

Created: November 17, 2020 04:08 PM

United Way of Freeborn County (UWFC) is hosting a final drive through Pop Up Pantry and a mask distribution on November 20th, 2020 at the Freeborn County Fairgrounds in the Show Arena Building. 
The entrance will be at the north gates off Richway Drive. 
Distribution will begin no later than 11:00 am until 1:00 pm or when supplies run out. 
The decision to close the County Fairgrounds and County buildings does not effect this event, as it serves a basic human and public health need.  

Families do not need to receive a food box in order to get masks.  

This is a collaborative effort between UWFC, Channel One Regional Food Bank, Freeborn County Public Health & the Freeborn Emergency Operations Center to accomplish this distribution. Significant support from all department of Freeborn County, including the Freeborn County Fairgrounds is also appreciated and noted.  

The masks are reusable, cloth masks that come in packages of 5, sized for adults. Each individual will receive a full package as long as supplies last. For larger groups and organizations needing masks, it is requested to email masks@unitedwayfc.org.  

To ensure the safety of volunteers and residents, those picking up food and masks will need to follow social distancing protocols at the drive-thru event.  

• Vehicles will pull up to the designated drive through location  
• Drivers MUST remain in their vehicle 
• Drivers will open their trunk remotely and the box will be placed in the trunk. If placing the box in the trunk is not an option, then the box   will be placed in the back seat of the vehicle.  
• Everyone is asked to wear masks, including those inside the vehicle. If needed, masks will be provided for you.   

Masks & food boxes are available to any local family in need. There are no questions asked. Persons unable to pick up food or masks themselves are welcome to send someone to pick up for them, or if significant barriers exist please call 507-373-8670.
