3 groups making face masks available to small businesses
The Columbus Jobs Foundation, the City of Whiteville and the Columbus Chamber of Commerce and Tourism have partnered to help small businesses throughout the county keep their staffs and customers safe by providing face masks.
Representatives of the three organizations are serving on a COVID-19 Recovery Task Force looking at ways to help the most vulnerable of the local business community. To receive a case of 50 masks, business owners should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The masks will be delivered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The masks were secured by Columbus County Economic Development Director Gary Lanier and Camron Shodia of Whiteville Fabrics.
