(May 28, 2021) The fight against COVID-19 is far from over in Newark. That’s why we’ve partnered with the New Jersey Department of Health to offer FREE COVID-19 testing at several La Casa locations in North Newark.
By offering regular testing opportunities weekdays and weekends, La Casa de Don Pedro is ensuring no stone goes unturned in the ongoing fight against the coronavirus pandemic that’s ravaged the city of Newark and still hospitalizes 1,740 New Jerseyans per week (as of May 1).
To further our reach in communities of color and to raise awareness about the importance of getting vaccinated, La Casa has partnered with the United Way of Greater Newark and The Rockefeller Foundation to implement Newark’s Equitable Vaccine Initiative. With a goal to increase North Newark’s vaccination rates, La Casa will host pop up vaccination clinics and events in North Newark in collaboration with the City of Newark this summer and fall. If you would like to volunteer with door to door outreach, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s all hands on deck!
