NOW: Kenosha teen credited with making more than 10K masks for people in need

RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A Milwaukee group is working to encourage more mask-wearing in Southeast Wisconsin.

Mask Up MKE launched a new campaign in Racine Tuesday night, Feb. 2, focused on teenagers.

The organization unveiled a new public service announcement featuring teens in Racine. 

They honored one teenager in particular, a 16-year-old from Kenosha who is credited with making and distributing more than 10,000 masks during the pandemic.

"When I heard that the masks were distributed to health care workers, frontline workers and people in need, I was very happy that their health was their number one priority," said Srisupraja Kandrakota, who made the masks. 

After Tuesday's event, Mask Up MKE helped deliver 10,000 masks and a food donation to the Kingdom Manna food pantry in Racine.
