The goal of the Medical Care Subcommittee of the Health Equity Recovery Task Force is to provide essential medical information to Houston’s highest risk communities to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and address critical medical needs. We are partnering with community-based organizations to co-sponsor, support, and promote outreach events in areas serving these communities.
Food, milk, masks and COVID-19 and preventative medical educational materials will be distributed. The estimated number of family food packages for distribution is 1000 - 2000.
Invited guests are Congressman Al Green, State Rep Hubert Vo, Mayor Sylvester Turner, Councilwoman Tiffany Thomas, Councilman Edward Pollard, and other local officials and community leaders.
Having an adequate number of volunteers on the day of the event is critical; if we are to be efficient. Please let us know if you have volunteers that could be available to participate in the distribution event. Notre Dame Parrish and the H.E.R. Task Force subcommittee members will also provide volunteers.
Volunteers will serve in the following areas/tented stations:
(1) Distribution Set-up
