People all over the Central Valley are wearing masks, and for good reason: They want to get back to school, back to work, back to normal. They want to protect loved ones, neighbors, and frontline workers.

The Central Valley Community Foundation salutes those people and is surprising 400 unsuspecting mask-wearers with a MaskUpCV Reward Card – a $100 Visa gift card to say thank you for wearing a mask!

#MaskUpCV Winners

What’s better than doing the right thing? Getting a reward for doing it! Take a look at the reactions from some of our reward card recipients as we surprise them with a $100 Visa gift card to thank them for doing their part to #MaskUpCV.

Getting a little vulnerable here.
I’m working with fresnobarriosunidos fwxjoseph quiero_mi_arte choose.lisa to create some comics that express some of the experiences we have run into during the pandemic – I decided to start off this series with my own story because how can I expect you all to open up about what struggles you’re going through if I don’t do the same?
I will be illustrating other peoples’ anonymous stories, both big and small, to hopefully help us all feel validated in our feelings during these times. ❤️ #maskupfresno #maskup #maskupCV #covid_19

“…and Again” our communities continue to be hit hardest by COVID while elected leaders and corporations neglect to prioritize human life over profits. Our hospitals are at capacity, our healthcare workers in crisis, and our mental health depleted from trying to cope with a national tragedy for almost a year. 💔

join our #MaskUp campaign by resharing our MU team’s message, surveys, and info. Watch our IG stories for more info. 😷

in the artists words: “…and Again” is an animated illustration I created to show the mundanity of how everyday life has been since COVID-19 hit around a year ago. To me, it’s been both frustrating and worrisome seeing things getting worse while following CDC guidelines. Due to irresponsibility and mismanagement from both elected officials and large corporations, our communities have been hit harder than they should have, and our hospitals are suffering the consequences.


Please share this on to your stories! Music has been a way to cope during quarantine, so if you’d like, feel free to add a song to it and tag me and fresnobarriosunidos in the story! 🙂

We were running around Downtown Fresno surprising people with $100 for wearing a mask…. and there’s my face… on a bus…. telling people to wear a mask. Very consistent messaging! #maskupcv #liveunited

My school board thinks kids and staff are expendable. If they didn’t they would be doing everything in their power to protect their health and safety. #MaskUpCV

There are real people behind the statistics you hear & the decisions being made and, for them, it feels pretty awful to be deemed such an acceptable loss. #SCOTUS

5 out of 12 schools have reached the 2% threshold to mandate masks for an additional 2 weeks. The high school, 9th grade academy, 2 middle schools, and one elementary. 4 elementary schools are one case away from joining them. That ladies and gentlemen- are with masks. #MaskUpCV

MaskUpCV is practicing safe engagement including socially distancing, wearing masks, and using hand sanitizer.

La mascarilla debe cubrir la boca y la nariz no la lleve debajo de la nariz o en la barbilla. Ademas de usar una mascarilla, quedese en casa tanto como sea posible y lavese las manos! MaskUP CV
