With so many Hoosier families hurting financially and otherwise due to the strain of the #coronavirus pandemic, it is inspiring to see stories like these of people sharing their generosity and blessings. Check it out via Washington Post.

“I used to play basketball on an old hoop like that, and I know it can be tricky to get the ball through a bent rim,” said FedEx driver Aubrey Robinson.

Young Votes to Pass Year-End Coronavirus Relief and Government Funding Package | U.S. Senator Todd Young of Indiana

I just voted to provide coronavirus relief to Hoosier businesses, communities, frontline workers, and families who have waited too long for this much needed assistance.

The package we just passed provides assistance to essential workers, small businesses, and unemployed Americans & provides additional resources for testing and vaccinations. It also contains several of my priorities to bolster Indiana’s health and economic security.

I’m glad this aid will finally be reaching the American people, particularly to ensure the safe and efficient distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines that will be essential for overcoming the pandemic.

Today, at the recommendation of the Senate Attending Physician for continuity of government purposes, I received a first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. As distribution continues across the country, I want to assure Americans that this vaccine is safe and effective.

I applaud the scientists and medical workers who helped make this vaccine a reality, as well as those on the front lines distributing and administering the vaccine across the country.

I’m fighting to ensure we pass a COVID relief package that will help get the vaccine to even more people as quickly as possible. I encourage all Americans to get the vaccine as soon as they can to help stop the spread of this virus.

This year my office helped return more than $4 million to Hoosiers by resolving 2,014 cases that were pending with various federal government agencies. We also helped resolve a high volume of #coronavirus related cases, including the repatriation of at least 194 U.S. citizens who were stuck in foreign countries when the lock downs began. Government should be at its best during emergencies like this, but bureaucracy can often prevent aid from getting to the people that need it. I’m happy that we were able to assist so many Hoosiers, and I will continue to make constituent services a priority. https://www.young.senate.gov/newsroom/press-releases/senator-youngs-office-helps-record-number-of-hoosiers-in-2020
