Homemade mask donations


April 9, 2020

DAYTON–Columbia County Public Health (CCPH), Columbia County Fire District No. 3, and Columbia County Public Transportation (CCPT) have teamed, to gather and distribute homemade masks to ensure each person uses one.

CCPT has established a bin for mask to deposit. Community members making homemade can take them to the local facility located at 507 W. Cameron and place offering in the collection box, or contact CCPT at 509-382-1647 and someone will pick them up.

Once the face masks have been gathered and before distribution, Fire District No. 3 will wash them and package them. If someone is unable to retrieve a bagged masked, call CCPT for delivery. The restriction is one bag per person, per household for those who cannot fabricate their own masks.

Those making masks are asked to construct them according to CDC guidelines. To find instructions go to and click on Use Cloth Face Coverings to… or visit

This is a public service people can help do for others in the community. Just another way to make our little town great.
