As COVID-19 cases and infection rates spike, the city’s trained emergency volunteers are ready to help ensure all Islanders are able to mask up for the Thanksgiving holiday and beyond.

The Mask-Giving Day giveaway will coincide with the Mercer Island Thrift Shop donation day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 21 at the Community and Event Center. Volunteers will be assisting with donation traffic flow, while also handing out free masks to anyone who comes through the parking lot. No need to donate to receive a mask, and walk-ups are welcome.
