According to our friends over at KCRG-TV 9, "Hy-Vee will be distributing 75,000 free cloth masks at its more than 125 stores in Iowa."

You can get your free mask today, May 26th, starting at 7 a.m. The masks are on a first come, first serve basis. Each store will have around 500 to distribute.

The story said Hy-Vee is hoping these masks will go to people who don't have a mask at the present time. To read the full article, you can visit this link from KCRG-TV 9.

The masks were donated by the following organizations:

  • The Iowa Department of Public Health
  • HanesBrands Inc.
  • The Centers for Disease Control
  • The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

If you're looking to get a mask, I would go now to make sure you will be able to get one. These are on a first come, first serve basis. I sure hope those who need them will be able to get to Hy-Vee before they are all gone!

I've got a couple masks at home, so I'm good for now. My friend knows someone that makes them and has been donating them in the community. I have one that's a KISS mask and the other is AC/DC.

I mean, you might as well try and look cool while staying safe, right?!

Special thanks to Hy-Vee for doing this. We're lucky to have such a strong community partner right here in Eastern Iowa.
