The Nakusp Rotary Club has come through for the community.
Rotary members Mayumi van der Pol and Mary McClaren spent a considerable amount of time early in May making over 200 non-medical masks for residents.
On May 24 and 30, Rotary members gave the masks away by donation oustide of Save-On-Foods in Nakusp and raised $530 for the local food bank.
Masks were also given away for free for residents who haven’t been able to find one.
The patterns of the mask were based on designs made by the Nelson Daybreak Rotary Club.
Rotary hopes to hold its annual Nakusp Wine and Beer Festival, which is its biggest fundraiser, in September.
