CAF Collaborated in CW Williams Community Health Event

On August 15th the Charlotte Area Fund collaborated in CW Williams Community Health Center for their annual health fair. This year was a little different as Covid-19 testing was the featured activity and due to the pandemic, this was a drive-through event. However, this did not deter those in need of healthcare and supportive services. Over 400 cars drove through approximately 30 vendor stations. CAF focused on program recruitment and the 2020 Census. Also collaborating with MeckCounts2020 CAF was able to share clear and concise information about the Census.

Covid-19 Prevention

The Charlotte Area Fund is proud to partner with community-based organizations to spread the word about Covid-19 prevention and services throughout Mecklenburg County. “There was a need to make sure members of our community most affected by the pandemic had access to clear information about how to prevent from getting sick and what to do if experiencing symptoms”, said Maya Norvel, communications and community engagement manager. Charlotte Area Fund has partnered with CW Williams Community Health Center, The Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office, The Latin Coalition and The Latin Chamber of Commerce to distribute over 100 signs to communities in need. “As Mecklenburg’s Community Action Agency, it is our job to work with individuals most vulnerable and ensure they have access to quality healthcare and supportive services. This yard sign campaign has increased the number of people reaching out to utilize services available to them and we are happy about that,” Norvel added.
