Mighty Mask Project - Atlanta
MightyMask Project was a grassroots project started in Atlanta to manufacture 3D-printed face masks to distribute to hospitals across the U.S. facing personal protective equipment (PPE) shortages amidst the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Started by Vajraang Kamat, a senior at Georgia Tech, this project gained momentum in just two weeks since it started. Once the masks came off the printer, a team of ten to fifteen volunteers spread across Atlanta worked non stop to cut filters to size, assemble masks, and bag them, to be shipped to hospitals in NY and GA.
Dinner program - Agape- Atlanta
The Compassion Kitchen Project and Every Child Counts joined forces to provide dinner to students enrolled in the Agape Youth & Family Center. There were 250 students in Agape’s program that received a healthy dinner each day after school in connection with its after-school program. Those meals were being prepared by and served by Agape’s volunteer community. As APS schools remained virtual, Agape continued its program virtually and delivered dinner directly to its students. CKP + ECC sponsored the meals for the Agape students on Thursday evenings till December 2020. We helped with $20,000 to provide dinner to Agape students 1 night per week for 15 weeks. Our meal cost was only $5/dinner that included a healthy protein, pasta and a vegetable.
