The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) asks departments with large quantities of the Hanes white cotton face coverings to drop them off this week at the Facilities business office in Gordon Hartlieb Hall 128 (907-786-6980).

OEM will collect them from the drop-off point in Facilities after Friday.
