Sequim Shell Station, formerly Kettel’s 76 Car Wash and Deli, at 194 W. Washington St., offers free face masks, face shields and/or gloves for senior citizens and veterans starting July 31 while supplies last.
Hap Khela, former co-owner of the station, said his family and the new owners want to support the community and those on fixed incomes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Masks are an extra expense for people that they might not have available,” he said.
“We want to make it easier for people because they can’t go in anywhere without one.”
Some face shields are also available for those with breathing problems.
Khela said they welcome donations from local businesses, with neighboring A-1 Auto Parts committed to help in some capacity.
He hopes to continue the donations for at least two weeks while supplies last depending on donations.
