Canadian based Erika ‘PR Diva’ Enyolu is a Program Director at Afro Centre For the Arts. Right before Christmas and into the New Year, Erika and the Afro Centre team will select 40 families in need and distribute $50 gift cards weekly per family for grocery shopping including supplies of PPE (hand sanitizers, masks & gloves).
According to PR Diva, the target is to make these deliveries within 12 weeks to hard hit families in Toronto. The team will also hold weekly virtual Zoom conversations about mental health and well-being with professional speakers in the creative and non-profit sector as a way of uplifting and empowering the community on how to deal with depression and mental health in this pandemic period. The program is funded by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund led by Employment and Social Development Canada and the Canadian Red Cross Society (“CRCS”).
