California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s June order mandating face masks has prompted local groups that serve families experiencing homelessness to request the public’s health. The Bakersfield Homeless Center anticipates needing hundreds of masks to serve its current population. 

As stated on the organization’s June 18 social media post, “With nearly 200 individuals staying with us every night, half of them children, we will need at least double the amount of cloth masks so they can rotate wearing and washing.”

Staff will also use the masks in the course of their daily work.

Community members interested in donating can call (661) 322-9199.
