To assist Hattiesburg’s health care community, first responders, and a general need for personal protective equipment, the City of Hattiesburg will host a mask drive-thru and drop-off event.
Donations will be taken at the Jackie Dole Sherrill Community Center (220 West Front Street) from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., on Thursday, March 26th, Friday, March 27th, and Saturday, March 28th.
All unused masks (medical, construction-grade, sewn fabric, etc.) will be accepted. The event will be drive-thru and drop-off only and all guidelines per CDC will be used for unloading donations out of vehicles.
- Donors with one case or fewer are asked to drive up in the right lane on West Front Street in front of Jackie Dole Community Center. Do NOT get out of your vehicle. City of Hattiesburg employees will meet you to unload your donation.
- Any business/donor that would like to donate several cases or a large load of masks can take a right at West Railroad Street (between the City of Hattiesburg’s Engineering Building and Jackie Dole Sherrill Community Center) and pull up to the back entrance. The driver will stay in the vehicle. City of Hattiesburg employees will unload.
- All motorists who frequently drive through West Front Street as a part of their daily commute are to approach the area with caution and patience.
City of Hattiesburg employees will sort masks according to industry and they will be distributed to our local health care community, first responders and essential services.
