Bill Graustein Lecture

You might not be able to travel to Pennsylvania to hear Bill Graustein deliver this presentation in early April. But on the other hand, given his loving and attentive investment into the New Haven non-profit community would it not be nice for a few folks to perhaps carpool and represent as the young people would say. Also who knows, perhaps we can entice Bill to deliver his lecture on home turf sometime soon as well !…

BLACK BOYS VIEWED AS OLDER

There is always and understandably plenty of discussion surrounding fear and community safety. We have heard the current buzz words of creating a safe space, the hoodie phenomena from Geraldo Rivera, clutching the purse in the elevator, knock out punches and more. Those of us dedicated to making New Haven and empowered community recognize the challenges. Let's continue to combine faith and action.…

MILENNIALS

It is always amusing to me the way that the marketing and advertising world categorizes and labels segments and cross sections of society. Nontheless this Milennials report I have found interesting. As we serve the people of all ages it is at the very least to read about alleged overriding and intertwined interests and inclinations of various age groups. As we attempt to serve always more effectively  our various non-profit constituencies, perhaps this report might shed some always needed…

A Letter to the White House Announces $11 Million Vaccine Access Fund

In a letter to the Biden-Harris Administration, which has called for corporate America to help in the fight to end the pandemic, the CEOs of Uber, Paypal, Walgreens and LISC announced a new Vaccine Access Fund that will connect people with free rides to COVID-19 vaccine sites. LISC will administer the fund, helping close the gap for thousands of people, many of them seniors and others living in under-resourced communities, who have not been vaccinated yet because of lack of transportation.

Give a Ride, Close a Gap

In a blog describing the new $11 million Vaccine Access Fund, a partnership of LISC, Uber, Paypal and Walgreens, LISC's President & CEO Lisa L. Glover details how the fund tackles more than the transportation gap that is keeping tens of thousands of Americans from accessing COVID-19 vaccines. "The fund offers a practical solution to an immediate problem," writes Glover. "But this is absolutely part of our larger efforts to address equity as well."

LISC, Uber, PayPal and Walgreens Introduce Vaccine Access Fund

LISC, PayPal, Uber and Walgreens have announced the launch of their new Vaccine Access Fund, which allows customers to donate to vaccine access efforts to help connect people without transportation to COVID-19 vaccination sites, particularly those in underserved communities. Customers can donate to the Vaccine Access Fund directly through the Uber app using a new donate feature supported by PayPal Giving Fund.
