Dropoff instructions:We are asking people to mail masks to 435 East Main Street, Ansonia, CT 06401. Attn: Joe Moker We can also pick up if there is a drop box in a nearby town (including East Haven, North Haven, New Haven, Hamden, Orange, West Haven). We just ask that the children's masks be labeled as well as the clear window masks.
We are providing reusable masks to over 3000 clients at BHcare- where we provide mental health and substance abuse for our community that spans all ages. Our programs also provide mental health care for children, as well as domestic violence services to families. We have a unique need in that most of our clients live below the poverty line. Your org has helped up meet the need of about 1000 masks, but we continue to need more as we see patients and our in-person appointments and services pick back up. Additionally, we now need more cloth masks for children to provide for kids who come through our domestic violence safe houses. We will also need 50 Clear Window face masks. We have a number of child clients who are deaf or hard of hearing and we need those masks to best communicate with them.
