Doing Our Part- Serving the Community
Our city, the City of Paterson, has been hit hard by the COVID 19 pandemic. So, it makes sense for Calvary Baptist Church to step up to the plate when asked and serve as a community vaccination site. The Community Vaccination event, held on March 1, March 29, and April 5 allowed Calvary to partner with the State of New Jersey Department of Health and FEMA while vaccinating 2,500 people.
“It was a major undertaking, but an awesome way to help get our community back,” says church employee Lanisha Makle-Ridley, who assisting in coordinating the event. “Many people came to Calvary to get vaccinated who were unable to secure appointments elsewhere.”
