When masks became mandatory in North Carolina, the local One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning and Benjamin Franklin Plumbing office decided they wanted to help their community by giving away FREE face masks around the Charlotte area.
On June 30, One Hour Heating & Air and Benjamin Franklin Plumbing set up a tent and a truck in two parking lots around town to give away over 2,500 face masks for people who need them. Adult and child-sized masks are available and there is no purchase necessary.
“With COVID, these are unprecedented times and we understand that it may be difficult for people to find face masks. We just want to do our part to make sure that the Charlotte community is safe and everyone has access to receive a face mask if they need it,” said Mike Fowler, owner of One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning and Benjamin Franklin Plumbing.
The location also got some local press coverage for their efforts and were featured on WCNC and CN2, along with features on local TV stations WJZY, WSOC, and WCCB.
