Oil refining and marketing company CountryMark has announced it will be covering the cost of $10,000 worth of face masks for Posey County schools.

The company says the donation will go to two different school districts: The Metropolitan School District (MSD) of North Posey County and the Metropolitan School District of Mount Vernon Indiana.

According to CountryMark, the donation comes after Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb announced his statewide mask mandate, which requires the use of masks in schools for grades 3 and up.

MSD of North Posey Superintendent Dr. Todd Camp says the district is in the process of purchasing thousands of masks for its students and staff.

“We are purchasing thousands of masks,” said Supt. Camp. “We’re in the process of purchasing over 5,000 masks for our students and staff.”

Dr. Matt Thompson, the Superintendent for the MSD of Mount Vernon says CountryMark's donation is greatly appreciated.

“During this time of economic uncertainty, we really appreciate the donation of $5,000 to go towards the purchase of face masks for our students,” said Supt. Thompson.

Posey County, Indiana is home to the CountryMark refinery, as well as many CountryMark employees and their families.
