Mask giveaway, Census information distribution scheduled in Niagara Falls


NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) – Free facemasks and information on the 2020 U.S. Census were given away at a special event in Niagara Falls Saturday afternoon.

The giveaway event was sponsored by local leaders and will be held from noon to 2 p.m. at True Bethel Baptist Church, 1112 South Avenue in Niagara Falls.

Pastor Craig Pridgen, who’s the son of buffalo coom council president, Darius Pridgen helped lead the event. Pridgen is a COVID-19 survivor. He said this is the first time he’s been back to the church since recovering from the virus and told News 4 there was a great turnout today and he’s thankful for all the people who came.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s “Hard to Count” map, as of May 21, only a little over half (52.2%) of residents living in the City of Niagara Falls have self-responded to the 2020 Census thus far.
