State Representative James White was on hand Tuesday morning at a food giveaway behind Harvest Church on South Wheeler Street in Jasper, handing out hundreds of medical masks to those who needed them.

It was in conjunction with the weekly effort by the Jasper Food Bank to supply food those in need.

White’s effort came after Governor Greg Abbott last week ordered citizens to wear medical masks in public places in counties with 21 or more active cases of Coronavirus.
