On Saturday, May 9, Compton United joined Mayor Aja Brown, Councilmembers Michelle Chambers and Tana McCoy in distributing much-needed supplies to residents during the coronavirus pandemic. With events staggered throughout the day in different parts of the city that is home to 100,000 people, residents were able to get diapers, food, hand sanitizer, water, and more for free. Los Angeles Councilmember and candidate for Supervisor Herb Wesson brought hundreds of Mother’s Day gift bags to each of the three events that took place at Gonzales Park, Compton Career Link, and Burrell-MacDonald Park.  Dr. Alan-Michael Graves, Director of National Programs of the Good Plus Foundation, donated thousands of diapers to the event.
