People have demonstrated astonishing acts of kindness in response to COVID-19, with generous donations to those in need, acts of service, and moral support. These people are real life heroes of coronavirus, putting the needs of others before themselves. Olivia Meme, a UCI law student, is one of these heroes.
Meme has dedicated her time during quarantine to lend a helping hand to those who are at-risk. On March 15, 2020 Olivia decided to start Orange County Grocery & Supply Delivery, a program that has attracted over 70 volunteers to help bring sanitized supplies such as groceries and other goods, to people who are at high risk of COVID-19. With over $1000 in donations and a team of dedicated helpers, Olivia Meme has made an incredible impact on her community.
While we are all living through a devastating and chaotic time, Olivia has decided to use her position to support at-risk demographics, as she explains that “It’s been really nice to focus my energy on something positive and getting help out to people who need it.”
