Thousands of masks were made available to students and community members thanks to the Ford Motor Company and Jeff Drennen Ford.

The local Ford dealership received more than 15,000 face masks from the Ford Motor Company in honor of its personal protective equipment day. Jay Shepler from Jeff Drennen Ford said they decided to get 11,400 of those masks out to the community by sharing them with the county school superintendents and the Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office.

“Every time a crisis like this (the COVID-19 Pandemic) hits the auto companies step right up and do something to help,” said Jeff Drennen.

Drennen joined Shepler and Adam Mills on March 9 at the Coshocton County Career Center to distribute the masks to the superintendents and Sheriff Jim Crawford.

“We really appreciate this,” said Rick Raach, superintendent of the Coshocton County Career Center. “This spring we will be here daily face to face and every morning there are students who walk in and have to pick up a mask.”

Coshocton City Schools Superintendent Dr. David Hire also was appreciative of the donation.

“Jeff Drennen is always helping our schools and our kids,” Hire said. “We just appreciate everything he does. We are grateful for the donation.”

Ridgewood Local School District Superintended Mike Maslowski said they appreciate support from the community.

“Jeff Drennen Dealerships step up to the plate when our community and schools are in a time of need,” he said. “We can always count on them.”

Dalton Summers, superintendent for the River View Local Schools District, echoed the thoughts of the others.

“We always appreciate any business in our community that contributes to the schools,” he said. “Jeff Drennen and his dealerships have partnered with River View in the past. We appreciate all that they have done in the past and what they will do in the future.”

Sheriff Crawford said his office will pass out their masks where needed.

“We appreciate the donation and will use it to fulfill needs in the community,” he said. “The masks are adjustable so they will fit juveniles and adults.”
