Students in Benton County are getting cloth masks with their school logos on them.

It’s part of a donation from the Bothwell Hospital Foundation and a grant from the Katy Trail, to students at Warsaw, Lincoln and Cole Camp.

Warsaw Superintendent Dr. Sean Poyser tells KRMS News the district already passed out the masks last week and that they’ve also received another 3,000 plain white masks from the Hanes corporation this week.

Officials at Lincoln schools say the district already purchased 1,500 disposal masks and have received over 300 donated masks from area non-profits.
