While The Caring Foundation of Texas’ Care Van regular initiatives are on hiatus during this COVID-19 time, the vans are being re-purposed to help the amazing organizations who are out helping the communities. Here is what we are doing behind the scenes:
Our partner, City of El Paso Health Department, is driving around in the Care Vans and visiting places where people are gathering. The educators are talking to people about the importance of social distancing.
We are partnering with the National Kidney Foundation, a group of renal nutritionists and social workers, and dialysis clinics to make sure that dialysis patients have healthy food options and toiletries to keep themselves safe. This grassroots organization is collecting money which will be used to purchase the supplies. To donate and support the cause, click here.
In Dallas County, we are partnering with the Dallas County Health Department and will be moving hand sanitizer to first responders.
Our Waco partner, Family Health Center of Waco, is using the van and redistributing PPE around the city so the medical professionals have the equipment they need.
