Local recording artist creates PSA to encourage Toledo to 'Mask Up' | Your Day
December 14, 2020
Inspired by the personal stories of those impacted by COVID-19, Dr. Tracee Perryman with Center of Hope Family Services used her skills as a recording artist and gathered community members to put together a PSA with a simple ask - mask up, Toledo.
The Mask Up Project encourages everyone to wear a mask and think about not only yourself, but the people around you, especially in communities that are at a higher risk of getting COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic is hitting urban and minority populations hard, so a non-profit organization in Toledo is hoping to be a part of the solution in Lucas County.
Songwriter, recording artist and CEO of the Center of Hope Family Services Inc., Dr. Tracee Perryman, penned a song to encourage mask-wearing and social distancing in urban communities and inner-city areas.
The ultimate goal of The Mask Up Toledo project, spearheaded by the Toledo-based Center of Hope Family Services and made possible through a grant from the City of Toledo Department of Neighborhoods, is to reduce the spread of the virus among minority populations through education.
Center of Hope Family Services has received a grant from the Greater Toledo Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund. This money will help Center of Hope continue its work during the pandemic.
