Our Covid-19 Work in March
A quick overview of a very eventful month for SACSS. Starting off on the first of March we distributed blankets, jackets for ages 2-3, mittens, scarves, beanies and masks at our office location. We also had eleven outreach events that consisted of distributing masks and COVID-19 related flyers, vaccination appointment assistance and referring clients to testing sites. These took place in various parts of Queens such as Elmhurst hospital, Main Street Flushing Library, a self-swab testing site at Medina Hall Ozone Park and more! Some were in collaboration with other organizations such as Center for the Integration and Advancement of New Americans, Inc. – CIANA, Public Health Solutions and NYC Health + Hospitals. A total of 38, 000 masks were distributed.
