A facemask giveaway is scheduled for Friday in Albany.
Anyone who has tried knows it can be difficult securing a facemask to comply with the state order. It's even more difficult for the elderly and for people who don't have easy access to transportation. Pastor Charlie Muller of Albany's Victory Christian Church saw a need and reckoned he'd fill it.
"We purchased 5,000 facemasks that will be given out the 22nd from 3:45 to 5 in Livingston Park, Third Street Park in Albany, and then downtown we're gonna be doing it at Elizabeth Street and Morton Avenue, so right on the corners there."
The evening giveaway runs from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Muller invites anyone, especially older residents needing masks, to stop by one of the two sites.
