I discovered a box sitting on our apartment complex mailbox a couple of days ago. The top was cut away and on the side in marker it stated: "Please take as needed. Enough for all building residents and a couple extra." Peeked inside - some friendly neighbor had sewn cloth masks for everybody in the building! My partner and I both grabbed one - I actually wore mine out the other day. I keep meaning to leave behind a thank you note to whoever left them but don't know if this person actually lives in our building or would ever be back to see it. So, dear neighbor, thank you for your kindness and generosity!
