ROCHESTER — Members of the Rochester Rotary Club visited several businesses and nonprofit organizations last week to deliver 2,500 face masks as part of the Rotary Million Mask Challenge Tour. The tour, which began on Monday, Oct. 5 and continued through Wednesday, Oct. 7, traveled through six states and stopped at nine major municipal centers to deliver a total of 800,000 masks to awaiting Rotarians.

“It was an honor to give important PPE to the incredible first responders and essential workers in our community on behalf of Rochester Rotary,” stated Kerry Norton, Rochester Rotary President.

Local recipients of the donated personal protective equipment included A-D Archambault Plumbing & Heating, Gather, Goodwin Community Health, Hope on Haven Hill, Monarch School of New England, Rochester Fire Department, and Rochester Police Department.

The Million Mask Challenge was launched by East Hampton Rotarian Ted Rossi and the Rossi Family Foundation. Rotaries throughout New England are distributing the masks, donated by the Rossi Foundation, to first responders, human services agencies and groups that work with vulnerable populations, including the elderly, homeless and people with health risks.
