CEO sends big THANK YOU to the team for its Resiliency during the organization's COVID-19 pivot year

GAGDC Family, 

It has been slightly over one year when COVID-19 descended upon our community, our city, our country and the world.  Our need to pivot was not difficult because as a service-driven organization, we are accustomed to serving, selflessly.

From massive PPE distribution to food distribution, from distributing cash assistance to families across the region to supporting businesses impacted, from standing up COVID-19 test sites to now delivering residents for vaccinations, GAGDC's resiliency has been on full display and our community is prevailing!  

Thank you to those who sacrificed their Sunday, March 14, 2021 (COVID response team supervior, J. Rawls' birthday) to assist with the Mayor's Senior Week Vaccination Event at Foster Park.  The city's Chief Equity Officer - Candace Moore, on site with tthe team  - was quite impressed and appreciative of the team's efforts and committment to the seniors.
What a great job we did.  Nice pictures, too. Please forward and share.
Carlos A. Nelson
