On Tuesday, May 12, teams of volunteers will provide free Nightingale™ face masks to seniors 65 and older at nine drive-thru locations throughout Winston-Salem. Seniors must present identification to receive masks, which are being limited to one per senior with a maximum of two per car.

Mask the City officials said a total of 20,000 masks will be given to seniors on May 12 beginning at 11 a.m. The nine distribution sites are:

BB&T Ballpark
951 Ballpark Way
(Enter off Broad Street)

Bowman Gray East Parking Lot
1301 South Martin Luther King Jr Drive

St. Peter’s World Outreach
3683 Old Lexington Road

Carver High School
3545 Carver School Road

LJVM Coliseum
2825 University Parkway

Fulton Family YMCA
385 West Hanes Mill Road

Mt. Tabor High School
342 Petree Road

Calvary Baptist
134 South Peace Haven Road

Forsyth Tech Bolton Street/West Campus
1300 Bolton Street

Although the masks distributed on May 12 will be free of charge, many seniors have asked for an opportunity to pay for masks. Mask the City will have volunteers from Truist at each of the nine locations to accept cash contributions. Contributions also can be made online at maskthecity.com. Gifts made either in-person or online will help offset some of the cost of the 20,000 masks and help fund future masks for the community.
