The impact of the corona virus is wider than health. Some families are impacted economically by school closure, sporting events, hospitality industry, etc.

He is also the co-founder of the VOICES project. Leroy, his wife Donna, and their family have spent their lives responding to community needs in ways that empower dignity and agency to those impacted by injustice.
Online donations will be deposited in a VOICES project account and used to buy gift cards from grocery store chains to be given to schools and community based nonprofits that will identify families and distribute the cards.
