Compassion Through Action Initiative Provides Support to Residents and Local Organizations
The Rashid Campaign continues to mobilize volunteers to support community members in need and be 1st District triage point for face masks, and other vital supplies.
STAFFORD, VA — With the total number of COVID-19 cases approaching 11,000 in Virginia, the Rashid for Congress campaign continues to offer and provide assistance to area residents and organizations in need. Through the Compassion Through Action initiative, the Rashid for Congress campaign is mobilizing its volunteer and supporter base, digital reach, and resources to support constituents around the district.
Over the last few weeks, the campaign’s Compassion Through Action initiative has dropped off hundreds of PPE face masks, gloves, and other supplies. The campaign also continues to text and call 1st District residents to offer support and assistance during this public health and economic crisis. The Rashid campaign asks that local individuals and organizations in need reach out to the campaign so that they can receive any necessary support.
On March 13, Congressman Rob Wittman promised us more testing for COVID-19. It has been 41 days since that promise and we still don’t have enough tests. 48,000 Americans have died and 800,000 Americans are infected. The campaign urges Rep. Wittman and the federal government to prioritize increased testing capacity in the 1st District and across Virginia, so that we can overcome this public health crisis and safely and effectively reopen the economy. The campaign urges all Virginians to remain vigilant and exercise the health precautions advised by the Virginia Department of Health, including continued social distancing.
