An exciting update from our team in Los Angeles...
By Julieann Jones - Grants Manager
Our second cohort of volunteers arrived at the end of January, a group that is inclusive of two AmeriCorps NCCC teams. Following a period of mandatory quarantine, the volunteers continued supporting the essential work of our partners, CORE and LA Regional Food Bank. For the duration of March, we’re also assisting with vaccine distribution at Kedren Community Health Center; a clinic focused on serving underserved populations. Among other efforts to support the local community, the team made a PPE donation to our Skid Row partner in the Mayor’s Office. So far, our teams have helped feed 530,192 people, and facilitate 345,219 COVID tests!
While COVID-19 cases remain extremely high in Los Angeles, we are pleased to share two pieces of positive news: 1) that CORE has been administering COVID-19 vaccinations as well as testing since late January, and 2) that we have decided to extend our program until July given the significant, ongoing needs of the County in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
Thank you again for generously supporting our COVID-19 relief efforts in Los Angeles. I look forward to updating you again soon!
