Face Masks Needed
The City of Dublin is in need of plain fabric masks for police officers, fire fighters, park and recreation staff and other city employees. If you are able to participate in this service project masks may be dropped off in the boxes located at the front entrance of Dublin Police Station, 6565 Commerce Parkway and Dublin Service Center, 6555 Shier Rings Road. Below are several options for making masks including a “how to” video made by 7th grade student Jackie McAuliffe.
