CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The law firm of Herrman & Herrman sponsored another drive-thru face mask give-away this morning.

The turnout was huge.

Even the rain didn't stop folks from lining up outside the Brewster Street Ice House on Holly Road.

Some were there as early as 6 a.m, even though the event didn’t start until 8 a.m.

They had 7,000 masks to give away and they went quickly.

The folks at Brewster say they were more than happy to take part.

“We always try to do that here at Brewsters, it makes us feel really good, especially with the big response that we're having,” said Leon Burns, GM of Brewster's southside location.“It’s awesome to be doing it and it's awesome to be teaming up with Herrman and Herrman also, they're a great bunch of people.”

Along with the face masks, folks also got free gift bags with downloadable menus, I-phone gear and some other neat swag.
