Mask Mavens, a group of Huntington volunteers, has turned out more than 10,000 masks and then donated them for free to those who need them.
Mary Beth Kraese, who organized the effort, said there are 44 volunteers are work, creating the often-colorful masks meant to deter the spread of the coronavirus.
Medical experts recommend wearing masks in public when a safe distance of six feet or more can’t be maintained.
The group has distributed the free masks to dozens of local businesses, from veterinarian offices to charity offices and delivery workers.
