Racine County comes together to host COVID-19 care package distribution
RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The pandemic is showing no signs of slowing down, and neither is the need to help those experiencing the worst of it. To help out, various organizations in Racine County came together Friday, July 17, to host a COVID-19 care package distribution.
The care packages were handed out to families at Cesar Chavez Community Center in Racine.
The packages included toilet paper, dish soap, paper towels, face masks, hand sanitizer, and family food boxes.
Racine Mayor Cory Mason hopes events like these keep happening in the future.
"If we can help people with resources whether it's a mask or some supply of food to help ease some of the insecurity that exists... we want to be able to do that," Mayor Mason said. "We're going to have to be creative this year in a way that we haven't before and adapt to what comes before us."
In all, about 1,000 care packages were handed out.
