Atlanta, GA, May 13, 2020 — In coordination with the Atlanta Korean-American COVID-19 Task Force, Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta has brought together community members to help those whose hardships in the outbreak are compounded by additional challenges in seeking assistance due to limited English proficiency and immigration status, among other cultural barriers.
Organizations and volunteers are teaming up to provide 300 hygiene kits, in-language information, and food to provide assistance to those hardest hit by the crisis. Kits will include essential items such as toilet paper, paper towels, hand sanitizers, hand soap, masks, disinfectant, as well as other items in high demand and information about the changing election and census dates.
WHAT: Advancing Justice-Atlanta & Atlanta Korean-American COVID-19 Task Force’s curbside COVID-19 basic supplies pick up.
WHEN: Saturday, May 16, 12 PM.
WHERE: The Korean American Association of Greater Atlanta (5900 Brook Hollow Pkwy, Norcross, GA 30071)
We are serving the immigrant community, particularly those in economic hardship, seniors, undocumented community members, and those who are unable to receive a stimulus check, unemployment assistance, or other forms of government aid.
Advancing Justice-Atlanta is continuing to provide assistance through our Mutual Aid program to different communities. Donate now at http://bit.ly/aaajdonate and find out more by visiting advancingjustice-atlanta.org
