March 24th COVID-19 Update
As work and school has moved into the home, we’ve begun to bring in some local experts to share their knowledge with our community. Today, we have videos from Megan Chapman, Outreach and Development Director from the Gulf Coast Kids House - view here - and Josh Newby, Marketing Communications Director with Council on Aging - view here. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more videos in the coming days.
I was also able to talk with WCOA’s Don Parker about the resources available to help businesses during this time. You can hear the interview here.
