Local dry-cleaning shop Yates Dry Cleaning has donated hundreds of masks during the pandemic and added another 150 to their total in a donation to at-need children in Alexandria.
According to a press release from Yates, the company donated 150 face masks designed to limit the spread of coronavirus to PK Move, a local parkour company putting together boxes promoting physical activity during the pandemic.
“The masks will be included in 150 ‘PK Move in a box’ kits that will be distributed to at-need children in the Alexandria City School System,” the press release said. “[the boxes] feature creative ways to be active while social distancing.”
The donation was overseen by Mayor Justin Wilson.
“We are so lucky in this community to have a very generous business community,” Wilson said, “particularly during this time right now when our community is in such need.”
Yates Dry Cleaning has donated over 1,000 face masks to non-profits but also sells the masks for $15 with the full cost being donated to an employee relief fund.
