During this time of crisis, all the more we need a support system to help us feel secure and encouraged. At the Activated Massachusetts African Community, we have launched a COVID-19 helpline with the goal of helping people cope with and manage their stress and anxiety. We also aim to educate everyone about this global pandemic to make them feel empowered to overcome the challenges that come along with this public health crisis.
The event is taking place on Friday, August 21st at 253 Roxbury Street, Boston MA 02119.
This event will include the distribution of free PPE (masks and hand sanitizers) and $50 gift cards for each household.
Testing is free, no ID required and all immigration statuses are welcomed.
This is for the African immigrant community, so please come, bring your family and others!
