Duluth NAACP holds mask giveaway

The Duluth NAACP continues working to help people stay safe during the pandemic.

On Thursday, they hosted a mask giveaway to people in need.

It's their 21st distribution this year.

Their goal is to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 for black, indigenous, and people of color in the community.

They hand the masks out for free to anyone, regardless of race, prioritizing locations where there are large minority populations.

They also hand out voter and census information with the masks.

Organizers say it's all in an effort to help the community.

"We hand out people to masks that need masks and it feels empowering to an organization and to the community to help provide tools that could actually save lives," said Lynn Goerdt, a volunteer.

They have handed out more than 10,000 masks since April.
