Behind The Masks of Our Essential Workers  – Friday, July 10, 2020

Jen Ayers, Executive Director, ALIVE!

ALIVE!’s mission to provide essential services, such as food and shelter, has never been more critical to our community. Since the pandemic began, their team has prepared food for people in quarantine, sheltering in hotels, and stations at non-profits. They’ve also coordinated four drive-thru food distributions, feeding 40,000 meals to 8,000 individuals.

“Jen Ayers is a true leader. She has been on the front line throughout the entire COVID-19 pandemic. I have been so impressed with her response to the current crisis. I have seen her leverage her many community relationships and work with her team in creative ways to feed people who otherwise may have gone without.” – Gin Kinneman
