Kobe Mask Donation

In August, the city of Seattle received a donation of 10,000 face masks from its sister city of Kobe, Japan. The masks are being distributed to first responders (police and firefighters), human services providers, long-term care facilities, and other community organizations.

The sister-city relationship marks its 63rd anniversary this year. It is a relationship Seattle is proud of.
