(WBNG) -- A local sports uniform company is thanking teachers for all their hard work during the pandemic.
Worldwide Sport Supply is giving teachers a free face mask on Wed. Jan. 13 through Friday, Jan. 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The initiative started on Mon. Jan. 11.
When the coronavirus pandemic started the company switched their focus to providing masks to everyone from front line workers, people in the corporate world, and sports teams.
TJ Ciaravino, the Owner of Worldwide Sports Supply, says he started the mask giveaway for teachers as a small token of appreciation after seeing all the stress his wife and other teachers have been under.
Ciaravino said teachers must show their teacher I.D. and it's one free mask per teacher. Worldwide Sport Supply is located at 2809 Old Vestal Road. For more information visit their website here.
