About the Event
Please join your chapter brothers and our Community Development Corp (Alpha Alpha Lambda Community Development, Inc) to distribute 1,000 face masks to Newark based residents. The face masks will be distributed on August 8 between 11-1:30pm at the St. John’s Baptist Church located at 137 Fairmount Ave, Newark, NJ. St. John’s has a food pantry where twice a month it feeds and provides food and clothing to Newark’s residents. We will distribute the face masks as part of the St. John’s food pantry distribution.
In addition, we will be distributing the rest of the face masks in conjunction with the City of Newark at a time and location where the Newark Mayor will hopefully be able to appear. The city of Newark is enforcing Governor Murphy’s executive order requiring its citizens to wear masks in outdoor public spaces. Newark’s Mayor and public safety are promoting its “MaskUpNewark” intiative to help Newark’s face masks enforcement efforts.
