Jeannie and her fiancé, Jeezy, are working together to help the most vulnerable population group, who have been affected by the coronavirus outbreak.

The high risk of catching the virus posed for senior members of the community makes it difficult for many of them to leave their homes and go grocery shopping.

Jeannie revealed that she wanted to help stop the risk of exposure for the elderly, especially those living alone. She encouraged people who are willing to help shop and drop off supplies at various locations. She ended her messages saying:

"Please practice ALL levels of social distancing and safety protocols with whatever you do. We will get thru this?."

Jeannie's efforts in helping communities affected by the virus come only weeks after she penned an emotional letter about racism triggered by the coronavirus.

In an editorial she wrote for PEOPLE, she opened up about how Asian-American tensions created by the outbreak have affected her daily life.

She revealed that many of the hateful comments she had been seeing on her social media had been spurred by racism towards Asians, forcing her to bring it light.

With many viral videos capturing the attacks on Asians around the country, she admitted, "it feels like there's two viruses. COVID-19 … and fearful ignorance."

Jeannie is no stranger to confronting racism. The talk show host has been dating Jeezy since 2019 and dealt with a lot of backlash when the couple was first spotted together in public.

According to Daily Mail, Jeannie recently confirmed her engagement hours after Jeezy proposed to her over a Vietnamese themed dinner. He set up the surprise to make up for his actual plans of traveling to the country with her, where he had intended to propose.
