UAct was one of 85 local organizations that received a COVID-19 Response Fund grant in 2020 from the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln and United Way of Central Illinois. We used the 00 grant to support two outreach workers, DeAndre Neal and Jonathon Harrington, and supplies. Four culturally responsive flyers were created by Southern Illinois School of Medicine and printed for us in-kind by Memorial Medical Center. UAct Outreach Workers distributed flyers, masks and gloves and had direct conversations about COVID prevention with residents across East Springfield targetting neighborhoods, businesses, service groups, food-giveaways, housing complexes, demonstrations and more.
