Mask Up for ME

Types of face coverings graphic

Show that you care for our community and wear a mask to keep our region healthy!

Our region’s health and human services leaders encourage you to follow the CDC’s recommendation to wear a mask in public spaces and try your best to keep 6 feet apart from others.

Wearing a reusable, cloth face covering and staying socially distant in public is an easy way to show your care for others and to help control the spread of COVID-19.

It’s time to Mask Up for ME.

Mask Up for ME allows everyone in our community to show off their generosity and care for others by wearing a face covering in public places. Mask Up for ME also gives people a place to donate homemade cloth face coverings to supply those who are without.

Local residents who need face coverings and can’t supply their own masks are able to obtain them through our community partners’ distribution locations.

Donated face coverings are;

  • Free for the taking!
  • Professionally cleaned and packaged prior to distribution.
  • For continued use (see our Face Covering Guide for more information)

You can help make a difference in our region’s health and safety by wearing and donating a mask!

Don’t sew? You can help by making a financial donation to the United Way of Eastern Maine’s community face covering fund below.

All proceeds will go toward the purchase of reusable, cloth face coverings for those who cannot supply their own.
