The G.R.E.E.N. Foundation

The 180 Days Community Engagement Campaign

The G.R.E.E.N Foundation and the National Association of University Women Inland Empire Branch (Branch) met to formulate and collaborate plans of action to help reduce health care inequities through changing existing structural barriers through advocacy and leadership training. The two organizations signed a Memorandum of Understanding on January 10, 2022, where the G.R.E.E.N Foundation would provide educational material about the COVID-19 virus on a weekly basis and the Branch would disseminate this information to its members, networks, and the Inland Empire communities.

As Health Influencers, it is rewarding to know we are giving members of our communities the tools they need to succeed in minimizing the effects this pandemic has on their and their families’ lives. The flyers on Washing your Hands, Ventilation, Identifying Covid 19 Symptoms, and Day of Remembering Pray, among the many other flyers, which were disseminated in our communities have been impactful. One recipient reported that her family got COVID-19 after attending her son’s wedding. They had the G.R.E.E.N Foundation flyers readily available and were able to navigate through the process of getting medical attention and recovering within a reasonable time.

During the process of helping our communities, we visited the Foothill Family Shelter and delivered hard copy flyers and brochures about COVID-19 and general health information along with personal protective equipment (PPE). This agency provides transitional shelter for homeless families with children. The shelter was happy to receive the masks, hand sanitizer and health education flyers for those most vulnerable in our population.

The simple act of doing a survey, talking, and sending health information has been rewarding for the members the Branch just knowing we are providing the tools our communities need to remain healthy. We thank the G.R.E.E.N Foundation for the opportunity to partner with it to help our community in an area most needed.
