Hey Maine! This makes wearing a mask not only safe, but fun too.

Mask Up For Maine has come out with another fun video encouraging you to “Mask Up For Me” In this clip, a young man puts on his mask, then is pelted in the face with powdered sugar, coffee grinds, green slime, a slice of pizza (my personal fave) and marshmallows. At the end he proclaims “It’s not perfect, but it works. Wear your mask people” He’s right. Just masking up can reduce the risk of spreading or catching COVID-19 by 85%

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 their community partners’ distribution locations. Donated face coverings are free for the taking, professionally cleaned and packaged before being distributed.

You can help by making a financial donation to the United Way of Eastern Maine’s community face covering fund. All proceeds will go toward the purchase of reusable, cloth face coverings for those who cannot supply their own. https://chlb.me/mask-up-for-me/ gives you the option to donate $10, $25, $50, or whatever you can afford.

These masks are distributed to non profit organizations throughout the region and be available for individuals to access at specific locations in the community. Individuals needing a mask should reach out to their primary care providers directly, or contact Penquis at (207) 973-3500.

John Palmer and his wife Sonja have become local legends around these parts. You may remember them for their hysterical outtakes from the “Buttery Flaky Crust” blooper commercial Dysart’s ran a few years back. They have masked up for ME too!
