Community resource partnership event at Isaiah Fredericks Community Center

The Isaiah Fredericks Community Center brings resources directly into the neighborhood it serves.

The Gulfport branch of the NAACP partnered with Open Doors Homeless Coalition, Community Action, and Memorial Health System to help those in need.

The organizations offered housing or utility assistance and COVID-19 vaccines.

Doors were open today with representatives onsite and available to help. Gulfport NAACP President/ Chairman at Memorial Gary Fredericks said, “This is our community service outreach program which we bring back to the community at least twice a year. This has been on our calendar since May. COVID numbers are up now so people are being educated and re-educated on the importance about getting their vaccinations and their booster shots and we’re proud to bring this back into the community.”

Memorial put more than 50 shots in arms, offering both first and second doses of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and COVID booster shots.
