18 Partners to Aid in Distribution

SHEPHERDSTOWN, WV (October 20, 2020) – The Community Education Group has begun distribution of 2,000 COVID-19 Relief Kits in West Virginia through 18 distribution partners.

CEG’s staff, along with Milan Puskar Health Right and its clients, put together these backpacks on October 19, filling them with reusable masks, hand sanitizer, educational materials, a state resource guide, promotional CEG stickers, and gift cards to Kroger for the purchase of water or other needs.

“When the COVID-19 pandemic hit West Virginia, one of the first things we were told to do was to wash our hands,” said CEG Founder and Executive Director, A. Toni Young. “Some of the clients our distribution partners serve may be experiencing homelessness or not have running water, leaving them particularly vulnerable to transmission. We felt called to do something.”

CEG received partial funding for the contents of these Relief Kits thanks to generous donations from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (www.aidshealth.org), the Community Access National Network (www.tiicann.org), and ViiV Healthcare (www.viivhealthcare.com).

CEG’s distribution partners include the following organizations:
