Healthy Hood and partners will launch a community-based volunteer task force that will provide in-need community members with PPE materials, essential groceries and accurate public health recommendations through zero-contact home deliveries.

Tonya Lozano from Healthy Hood Chicago joined ABC7 to talk about the task force and its goal to lower the rate of infection and death from COVID-19 in our most vulnerable Chicago communities.

Residents in need of PPE or essential supplies are encouraged to call 773-839-9782 for assistance.
