AUBURN GRESHAM — If you missed your chance to get one of the 5,000 masks the St. Sabina staff distributed last week, you’ll have another opportunity Thursday afternoon.
The Southwest Side parish will be handing out 10,000 masks at the intersection of 79th Street and Racine Avenue beginning at noon and ending once all supplies have been exhausted.
Father Michael Pfleger said the church has been inundated with calls from residents requesting free masks after last week’s giveaway.
The masks are a donation from former mayoral candidate Dr. Willie Wilson, who owns a medical supply company.
