WOODSTOCK, CT (WFSB) - A 9th Masks for CT giveaway kicked off on Tuesday morning with people lining up hours beforehand.

It happened at the Woodstock Fairgrounds, located at 281 Route 169 in Woodstock.

Forty-thousand masks were available at the start of the event.

As with previous mask giveaways, all people had to do was drive up to the event and pop the trunk. A volunteer deposits five free face masks inside.

The event has been made possible by Masks for Heroes and the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven.

Sponsors include Channel 3, WTIC News Talk 1080, Centreville Bank, CR Premier Properties, Halloran Sage, Linemaster, Byrnes Agency Insurance, Berkshire Hathaway and Woodstock Orchards.

To donate to the cause, head to the Masks for CT website here.
