We're raising funds for
one mobile vaccination team
We’re joining MLK Community Healthcare (MLKCH) to provide COVID-19 vaccines to families across South LA.
Your gift will fund one mobile vaccination team. Going mobile allows us to bring vaccines directly to the community—in grocery store parking lots, housing projects, and elsewhere.
Each mobile team vaccinates about 300 people per event, averaging 2,000 per week. That's 2,000 more families who are safe from the virus. And as vaccine supplies increase in availability and more people become eligible, MLKCH’s mobile clinics will continue to make a big impact.
South LA was disproportionally impacted by COVID-19. But vaccinations will help bring an end to this pandemic.
It will take all of us to make a difference.
Join us today!

Your long-lasting impact
Creating equitable distribution and access to the COVID-19 vaccine is critical in one of the hardest-hit communities in the country. Stories of loss and grief played out each day in MLKCH’s hospital, and thousands of families have lost loved ones.
But vaccinations are bringing health and hope to the community. Your gift will make a long-lasting impact by creating a foundation for improving the health of South LA.
In the future, MLKCH will use these mobile clinics to bring services directly into the community through programs like:
- Street Medicine—bringing doctors and social services to unhoused people
- Know Your Basics—providing health education and screenings out in the community and in schools, farmers markets, churches
