(Little Rock, AR) - As Arkansans continue to cope with the threat of the novel coronavirus, Arkansas Health & Wellness, together with Arkansas Total Care, continues to support our community through a donation of $15,000 to the City of Little Rock’s ‘Little Rocks Cares COVID-19 Community Relief Fund’. The Little Rock Cares Fund helps provide food relief to Arkansas residents and personal protective equipment to health care professionals and first responders in Little Rock.

"We are extremely grateful for this donation to the Little Rock Cares Emergency Relief Fund," Mayor Scott said. "The COVID-19 crisis, unfortunately, is not behind us. These funds will assist us in continuing to ensure our first responders and healthcare workers receive the necessary equipment to continue meeting the needs of Little Rock residents and patients who need health services in our city."

The Little Rock Cares Fund is committed to helping feed Little Rock residents. Arkansas Health & Wellness and Arkansas Total Care share that commitment, which is why we recently partnered with Jimmy John’s to provide lunches to the workers of the City of Little Rock Solid Waste Department. These outreach efforts and our recent contribution of $100,000 to the Arkansas Foodbank reaffirms the company’s continued commitment to serving Little Rock and the state of Arkansas.

“We are proud to continue our support of the Little Rock Cares Fund and all Arkansans with this donation during the COVID-19 crisis. It is critical that we continue to care for those who are most vulnerable during this time. Together we can Help Arkansas Live Better.” – John Ryan, President and CEO, Arkansas Health & Wellness, Arkansas Total Care.
