Mission: 10K Masks

Sparkt's 10K Mask Giveaway Is Underway - Here's Where To Find Us Friday

We'll be keeping you posted on when and where we'll be handing out our free face masks for our "Mission: 10K Masks." Be a superhero, wear a mask, and let us help you get one!

In case you haven't heard, Sparkt is giving away 10,000 face masks in one week!

We know it's going to be a challenge, but we're counting on YOU to get the word out and help keep our city as safe and healthy as possible while we work to get back to a new normal.

Our team will be passing out face masks at different locations throughout the Pittsburgh area all week, and we'll be posting stories about the people we meet along the way.

We'll update the website to let you know the details for each day's distribution event. So, be sure to check back for the most up-to-date information on where to get your masks!

On Friday, we'll be teaming up with the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank to hand out face masks at their Drive-Up Food Distribution event at the PPG Paints Arena parking lot.

The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank holds food distributions nearly ever week, but this is the first time Sparkt has partnered with them!GPCFB Facebook

Each car that takes part in the event will get 3 boxes of 75 pounds of food, including produce, fresh items, frozen food and milk. Along with the food, every family will receive a package of four face masks, courtesy of Sparkt and our partners, Julian Gray Associates and Chaffin-Luhana.

The Food Bank will be able to provide donations to 1,000 cars.

Here are the details:

WHAT: Drive-Up Food and Mask Distribution
WHEN: Friday, May 22nd from 10:00 am – noon
WHERE: PPG Paints Arena, 1418 Center Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15219

Friday's distribution is the ONLY Food Bank event where Sparkt will be providing face masks. The Food Bank will NOT be passing out more masks at future drive-up distribution events.

The Food Bank is asking people to stick to the following guidelines to keep everyone safe at the event:

  • Individuals attending the distribution must stay in their vehicles at all times. Leaving cars to socialize is strictly prohibited.
  • After pulling into "distribution row", please put your vehicle in park and unlock your trunk or backseat for food to be loaded. Volunteers will not load food into vehicles until they are in park.
  • Please stay in your vehicle.• Attendees will not be required to fill out a registration form in order to receive food

We hope that you'll join us as we begin to adjust to the "new" normal. Stay tuned for information about the next place we'll be distributing masks, and let's #StartSomethingGood together!
