PepsiCo is donating $80K to UnidosUS partners in Hayward and Oakland. This money will be used to provide food for seniors, medical care, testing, and economic assistance. They will also be helping provide translation services and resources through Spanish Speaking Citizens Foundation in Oakland and Tiburcio Vazquez Health Center in Hayward.
PepsiCo CEO, Steven Williams, said they will be helping out African American and Latino communities around the United States that have been hit the hardest by COVID-19.
COVID-19 has once again put a spotlight on the deep-rooted health and economic disparities that have long faced communities of color. In response to this, we're helping to provide immediate relief and support long-term recovery for Black and Latino communities. But just as these inequities existed well before coronavirus, we will continue to do our part and be a partner to these communities in the months and years ahead.
