Back in September of last year, Ford Motor Company Fund announced that it intended to produce and distribute 100 million face masks to at-risk communities across the U.S. through 2021. That number has already increased to 120 million, and the automaker has previously donated two million face masks to the state of Ohio and 1.3 million masks in New England, among others.
Now, those efforts will continue in the state of Colorado, as Ford Motor Company Fund has announced that it is working with non-profits and dealers in the state to distribute 95,000 masks.
The mask distribution day is today, February 23rd from 9 am to 5 pm, and will take place in both the Denver and Colorado Springs areas. Those interesting in receiving free medical-grade face masks can pick them up at a host of area dealerships including Freeway Ford and Phil Long Ford in Denver, Groove Ford in Centennial, Spradley Barr Ford in Greely, and either Phil Long Ford location in Colorado Springs.
Residents will receive up to 20 free face masks. A grand total of 20 million masks will be distributed across the southwestern United States at this and upcoming mask distribution days, which will also take place in Phoenix and Tuscon, Arizona today.
In the Phoenix area, residents can pick up their free face masks at Salvation Army locations in Mesa, Surprise, and Phoenix, or dealers including Autonation Scottsdale, Jones Ford, Bell Ford, Larry H. Miller Ford, Chapman Ford, and Peoria Ford.
Tuscon area residents can visit Salvation Army locations in Tuscon or Sierra Vista, or dealerships including Holmes Tuttle Ford and Jim Click Ford in Tuscon or Green Valley.
