Manit ~ Lale Dron Campaign
On September 4, 2021 Nito’s Wings began our Manit ~ Lale Dron Campaign within the Sacramento RiMajol Community. This campaign incentivizes what is already Marshallese culture, acting as caregivers. If you identify as a greater Sacramento area Marshallese Community member and have gotten your COVID-19 vaccination since September 4th as a result of this campaign, if you obtain your booster as a result of this campaign, or if you help someone overcome a barrier to accessing vaccinations, including: transportation, translation, or access to IT. Visit our Nito’s Wings booth at one of the next Sacramento RiMajol events and get your $20 incentive gift card.
