LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) — In Lexington, like many other college students, the Virginia Military Institute's cadets are all at home.

While the barracks are empty, that means a lot of supplies don't need to be present, including more than 1,000 N-95 masks the college had bought as part of a pandemic plan in 2006.

They sent the masks to Rockbridge County's emergency services committee, which has now distributed them to several institutions in the area that were running short.
