This week the Iosco County Board of Commissioners joined forces with Northeast Michigan Community Service Agency (NEMCSA) in efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19. This partnership was due to MI Mask Aid, an initiative by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Michigan Community Service Commission which provided thousands of masks to Northeast Michigan Community Service Agency, NEMCSA.
Commissioner Charles Finley, who also serves on the NEMCSA board, was excited for the opportunity to mask-up Iosco County. Lisa Bolen, NEMCSA’s CEO/Executive Director echoed his enthusiasm.
“Whether it is distributing masks or providing NEMCSA resources to people in need, the collaboration between NEMCSA and Iosco County epitomizes our common mission in enhancing quality of life by empowering individuals and strengthening communities,” states Bolen.
The face masks will be distributed among Iosco County cities and township offices in Iosco, government workers and first responders over the next few days.
Masks can be requested by contacted NEMCSA at 866.484.7077 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
