The day’s agenda included a live radio remote, kid’s zone, well-living information and a food giveaway. In addition to screenings and vaccinations, local doctors, pharmacist, pediatricians, mental health psychologist and family members of covid patients that passed during covid, held a panel discussion to weave a thread on the affects and outcomes that have succumbed in have manifested in the community.
In an effort to garner interest in the event, participants received a $25 gift card for having their mammogram exam done or receiving the vaccine. With something for everyone from free honeydrippers to groceries, the biggest excitement came with cheers of the Raines varsity squad who personally cheered for every exiting vaccine shot. “This was a very successful event which we hope to build toward a big impact for Black communities getting more vaccinations against COVID-19…getting to the other side of the pandemic is the mission,” said sponsor Darryl Sellers, Creative Marketing Resources, Inc.
