Teens from the Jack and Jill of America Inc., Akron Chapter donated more than 40 masks to the Haven of Rest Ministries recently.  

Back in the fall, the teens sold masks as part of a community service project fundraiser. For every mask they sold, they received a mask to donate to essential workers.  

The teens decided to donate their masks to employees at the Haven of Rest ministries, an Akron based non-profit that helps the homeless.
