Posted On Friday November 27, 2020

(HUNTSVILLE, ON) Local Huntsville resident, Rylind Davis, took notice of an opportunity to support Huntsville youth during COVID-19 through a proposed initiative to Council on Monday night (November 23, 2020). With the knowledge that the Town had branded face masks, Davis proposed a portion of the sales be donated to a local charity supporting mental health.

With full Council support, and a kudos to Davis, the Town will be selling their branded face masks at Town Hall for $10.00 with $2.00 from every sale going towards a charity in support of mental health. The charity has not yet been identified, however Davis will work with staff to identify which one will be the recipient of the proceeds.

On behalf of council, Mayor Karin Terziano expressed thanks to Davis for bringing forth this opportunity to support youth,

“Thank you to Huntsville resident, Rylind Davis, for bringing forward this community initiative to support youth and mental health. Any way the Town can support our community during such trying times is important to do so.”

Consisting of three layers and a snug nose fit, many residents have been asking staff where they can get a Town of Huntsville mask. Starting Monday November 30, 2020, those looking to purchase a mask can visit Huntsville Town Hall at 37 Main St. East during regular hours of operation (Monday to Friday from 8:30am – 4:30pm). All forms of payment are accepted, however cashless options are encouraged.
