Face Mask Donation Drive

To help slow the spread in our community, the City has organized a weekly donation drive to improve access to face masks in Shaker. Donated masks can either be hand made or store-bought. Masks are distributed to local organizations to share with those in need in the community.

Face mask donations are accepted every Friday in the blue bin outside the Stephanie Tubbs Jones Community Building (3450 Lee) between 9am and 5pm.
