(WKOW) -- The Boys and Girls Club of Dane County is distributing thousands of supplies to those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.
CEO Michael Johnson said they'll be giving out over 60,000 surgical masks for health care workers and first responders, plus distributing about 100,000 gloves for food distribution centers and food pantries.
"Our neighbors need us more now than ever, and that's why we all have to collectively do our parts to give back to our community," said Johnson at a news conference Tuesday morning.
He said 40 backpacks with school supplies and books will be sent to students in Sun Prairie.
Meals for Sun Prairie first responders will also be provided by Liliana's in Fitchburg.
