Made in Richmond PPE Fundraiser
This campaign is about protecting lives and livelihoods. The COVID19 pandemic has created hardships for our communities. From speaking with our residents and businesses we saw a need to increase access to PPE, create opportunities for local manufacturers to operate, and engage youth in the campaign to slow the spread of COVID19. This partnership with Travis Credit Union Foundation is a win, win, three ways!
