I just saw a commercial on ABC channel 7 featuring CMAA! The sponsor was the Asian McDonald's Owners in Chicago- I didn't see the whole thing so I may have not have that right. Well done, CMAA, congratulations! Appearing on network TV during prime time!
Hello everyone! 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️ 🔸A University of Illinois COVID response initiative, Covalence, has just launched a facebook event that we highly encourage you to join if you'd like to join us in helping our communities amidst COVID-19. (for more info on Covalence visit covalence-uiuc.org) 🔹COVID Relief Service Sprints are short term (1-2 weeks) volunteering initiatives where we encourage our friends and families to take action by tackling a key COVID-related issue in their communities each time through an act of service. 🔹Volunteering may not be the most glamorous endeavor, but it IS an effective way for us to make tangible and direct contributions to a pressing need. What makes these Service Sprints unique is that every 1-2 weeks we will have a different theme (food insecurity, elderly loneliness, etc.) to encourage participants to get involved in different areas of service and learn how they can best serve their communities! 📢Request: Please RSVP to our Service Sprints Facebook Event to volunteer with us and to learn about how other participants across the US are contributing in their own ways! We urge you to take the initiative and encourage your friends and family to join as well so we can make a real difference through our combined efforts.
