7 Ways to get a FREE Face Mask
While stores have been working hard to make our shopping experience as safe as possible, they are now asking that shoppers join them to slow the spread of the Coronavirus. If you frequently shop one of the stores now requiring face masks, but don't have access to one – here are 7 ways to grab one for free.
Where Can I Get a Face Mask For Free?
1. Whole Foods
Whole Foods was one of the first grocery chains requiring masks to enter, and they took it a step further in that if you do not have one, they'll give you one! This is a disposable, medical grade mask that they will hand you at the door.
2. Sam's Club
Similar to Whole Foods, Sam's Club will provide members a mask at the door if you do not have one.
3. Apple Store
If your local Apple Store is still open, they will provide you a mask free of charge.
4. Best Buy
Best Buy will also provide you a face mask upon entering their store as it is required unless you're under 2 or have a medical condition that prohibits the use of a face mask.
Dhvani.com has a really neat program in place. This is a business where you can actually purchase face masks, however, you can also make a donation so that those in need can get a face mask for free. If you're in need of a free face mask, simply enter your email adddress to get started in the process to get your free mask.
6. Make Your Own Face Masks
You can get a free mask making information from Jo-Ann Fabrics (some locations were even giving out kits – but contact your local store to see if they're still doing this) OR you can take a peek at how we were able to make our own face masks at home!
