Albion Health Care Alliance worked with the Albion branch of NAACP and several other agencies during 2020 on programs because of the pandemic. Albion was one of the cities that benefited from free community testing.
Albion-Homer United Way and others made social media posts. They put up signs around Albion, so people knew where and when to go to be tested.
The other agencies were the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), the City of Albion, Allegiance Health, and Albion College.
Residents of Calhoun County can go to the Washington Gardner gym, which is open Monday and Wednesday from noon to 7 PM and Fridays from 9 AM to 5 PM. For an appointment, please call 888-535-6136

Voter Registration – 2016
For National Voter Registration Day, Albion NAACP worked with administration and student organizations at Albion College. This made possible a registration event at the college where 135 students were registered.
In addition, much information was shared. Through interactions with leaders from the college, our unit, NAACP and AAUW, the college has taken the new initiatives. This work has helped to adopt a strong program to promote student registration and voting.
In addition to the work at Albion College, 411 Voter Guides were shared with a senior housing area, two local businesses and the organizations involved with the event.
