Brookfield State Representative Steve Harding is highlighting an effort to help protect first responders and front-line emergency workers.
A statewide program called Masks for Heroes has been launched by the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven. 500,000 masks have already been distributed throughout the state, but hundreds of thousands more will be needed. The grassroots partnership distributes Level 1, FDA-approved masks to hospitals, first responders, and other front-line emergency workers.
All donations, which can be made online or by check, go directly to purchasing masks for these parties.
