ANAHEIM, Calif. (Aug. 28, 2020) — Residents can get free face masks without leaving their car at Anaheim’s first-ever drive-thru mask distribution event.

The mask giveaway will be held Wednesday, Sept. 9 at Magnolia Baptist Church, 720 S. Magnolia Ave., from 8 a.m. to noon.

Each Anaheim family will receive one pack of single-use, disposable masks until supplies run out.

Attendees should remain in their cars, walk-ups will not be allowed.

The event is part of Anaheim’s Community and Economic Recovery Plan, through which the city has allocated $35 million to community and business relief and other coronavirus resources.

In this plan, the City Council dedicated $1 million toward added personal protective equipment and COVID-19 testing for the community.

The city plans to host several more giveaway events in the coming months.

Anaheim requires a mask or face covering when out in public and especially when not able to keep six feet of distance from others.

As Orange County moves toward a gradual reopening, masks will play an important role in keeping our city healthy and continuing to stem the spread of coronavirus.

The event also coincides with National Preparedness Month and is part of our efforts to promote preparedness among Anaheim residents in any emergency situation.
