Today, Aid First donated more than 2,000 units of women hygiene and first aid materials to the YWCA Central Carolinas Women in Transition program and to Charlotte Rescue Mission Dove's Nest! Items included pads, tampons, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, disinfectant wipes, lip balm, hand sanitizer, and more.
We donated $300 and $200 worth of items to Samaritan House today! The $200 worth of items will be used to help out tens of people temporarily living at the Charlotte location, and the $300 will be used by Samaritan House to buy other items specifically fitted for their needs.
As a part of our Project COVID Response, we launched our Mask Ambassador program to get our community involved in the effort to defeat COVID. Mask Ambassadors make new masks to send to Aid First for dispersal and help our community stop the spread of COVID.
For more information on how to join, visit http://www.aidfirst.org/joinus.html and become a Mask Ambassador today!
Aid First donated 472 reusable masks to Covid-GCA who will redistribute them to local businesses! In order to reopen as safely as possible, lots of local businesses have reached out to Charlotte’s reopening committee in desperate need of masks. Aid First is so happy that we were able to make this contribution and continue to help those in our community!
Members from the Aid First Board, COVID-GCA, Charlottle City Council, and ReadyCLT met today to discuss the efforts being put forth to help local small businesses!
