We Stopped Accepting Donation for Fighting COVID-19

Dear members and friends,

After three weeks of hard work and careful consideration of the current situation, we decide to stop accepting the donation, effective April 12th, 2020, for the fundraising event “fight with COVID-19.” The PayPal link for donation is also removed from our webpage.

With your generosity, we have raised $ 47,927 from 282 donors by 9 PM on April 12th. Net the Paypal fees of $794.78, the amount is $ 47,132.22. 

So far, we have purchased 39,500 surgical masks, 1,000 KN95 masks, 230 bottles of hand sanitizer, 60 boxes of medical gloves. We also received about 2,800 surgical masks, 240 N95 masks and a few cleaning wipes from various donors. Most of the supplies were sent to 11 hospitals, one nursing home, one police department, and one church, etc. 

We will keep the effort going,  all remaining supplies and fund will be used to help more people in need. 

Once again, we are grateful for your support! We also thank all the first-line responders for saving lives and keeping our community safe to everyone!

Sincerely,

Yanhong Na, President

Chinese Club of Western New York
