We need your help in our GoFundMe campaign designed to offer strategic support to Black Belt communities with their plans to stop COVID’s spread. The federal government has left much of the planning for fighting the pandemic to the states themselves. Our beloved Alabama has a state plan, but it does not fully focus on rural communities in general or on the Black Belt Region in particular.
That’s where we have to STEP UP!
Black Belt Community Foundation has joined forces with state Senators Singleton and Fortier, to form the Black Belt COVID Task Force (BBCTF). This fight is being waged on many fronts such as working with local nursing homes, working on PPE for our first responders, expanding help for families, education, health care, agencies/food security, and businesses.
BBCTF has already implemented the Recoverable Grants Program with Hope Credit Union to better help local municipalities and counties access CARES ACT money to fight the pandemic.
Strategic planning and medical guidance is needed to strengthen the existing work of our local elected officials.
This GoFundMe will raise funds to secure key experts so that we can make the wisest decisions for our communities and families.
Help the Black Belt Crush COVID!!!
