Latimer Delivers Masks Donation to Mount Vernon
(MOUNT VERNON, NY) – Following last week’s donation to churches in Greenburgh, County Executive George Latimer delivered masks today in Mount Vernon to Grace Baptist Church, Greater Centennial A.M.E. Zion Church, Macedonia Baptist Church, Mt. Vernon Heights Congregational Church and Westchester Muslim Center. Latimer said: “We are continuing this mask distribution process across Westchester County - particularly targeting communities with high numbers of positive cases. We are making sure we are reaching those most in need to help us stop the spread and continue the positive path we are on.” Today, Latimer was joined by Deputy County Executive Ken Jenkins, County Legislator Lyndon Williams, Mount Vernon Mayor Shawyn Patterson-Howard, Mount Vernon City Council President Lisa Copeland and other Mount Vernon and County partners. The County plans to hand out masks to religious communities in need with scheduled donations upcoming in Yonkers, New Rochelle, Peekskill and Port Chester and elsewhere. These masks come from a donation of 50,000 protective masks for Westchester County from the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association (GNYADA). The masks are part of a larger donation by the GNYADA to 12 different counties in New York State. Latimer has also made numerous deliveries of masks to municipal governments all throughout Westchester.
