Last month, Sunup Rotary of Prescott embarked on a huge project to provide those in our community who are facing acute challenges with top-quality, 3-ply medical-grade masks which were purchased and the then donated by friends in Taiwan. This week the Sunup Rotary Club of Prescott delivered another 4000 of these masks, bringing our total mask donations to over 5000. The club delivered masks to the following shelters and food banks this week: 
  • The Coalition for Compassion and Justice (CCJ) operates an emergency homeless shelter, offers advocacy towards obtaining housing and income, repair assistance to low income homeowners, and operates a thrift store to serve their clients in need. 2500 masks.  
The Yarnell Food Bank provides food and basic provisions to the Yarnell area community through weekly deliveries to families and individuals and by welcoming all drop-ins on Fridays from 8 AM – 12 PM. 500 masks.
Prescott Area Shelter and Services (PASS), which provides temporary housing, resources, individualized case management, and a pathway to permanent housing for women, children, and veterans. 500 masks
Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank provides desperately needed support to people who are experiencing food insecurity. The food bank provides emergency food supplies to all in need, between 2:30 – 4:30 pm, Monday – Friday. 500 masks.
