5000 USD donation for personal protective equipment to organizations in urgent needs

As COVID-19 affects our community, there is a substantial increase in demand for the personal protective equipment (PPE). In addition to the volunteer works in the past few months, the Westchester Association of Chinese Americans (WACA) also contributed $5,000 to purchase 7,000 masks , and donated these masks to 9 organizations that are in urgent needs.

WACA really appreciates Dr. Jun Xu and the Association of Chinese American Physicians (ACAP) for their great efforts to make it happen.

During the Coronavirus Pandemic, the procurement and delivery of PPE become extremely challenging . Despite a variety of difficulties, Ms. Brenda Sun from WACA, working closely with Dr. Jun Xu from ACAP, made timely delivery of these masks to the organizations of Another Step, Cabrini-Eldercare, Cedar Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Lifting up Westchester, Neighbors link, Sutton Park Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, Tarrytown Hall Care Center, Theodore Young Community Center, and Trinity United Methodist Church.

As a non-profit Organization in our community, we are wholeheartedly thankful to everyone who supports WACA. We are very proud of our Board members, their family and our friends. We are from community, and for community. Together, we can do better and more to serve our community.

The Census 2020 Awareness:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------The 2020 Census is a constitutionally mandated once-a-decade count of our nation. It is critical that we achieve a complete and accurate count of everyone living in the United States because the results determine how many representatives in Congress each state has — and how more than $675 billion federal dollars are distributed each year into communities for the next decade. The 2020 Census results inform spending for critical services like schools, hospitals, roads, senior centers, and much more. Shape your future.

Dear friends, colleagues and community leaders:


Greetings!


After much deliberation, the Board of Westchester Association of Chinese Americans decides to reschedule its annual New Year Celebrations from February 8, 2020 to May 17, 2020. The rescheduled event will take place at the same venue: the Performing Arts Center at SUNY Purchase College. All sold tickets, sponsors and supporters will be valid and accepted for the event at the new date.


We regret to have to reschedule due to the outbreak caused by a novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). The public health of our children and our community at large should always come first.


Thank you for your understanding and continued support. We look forward to welcoming you to our event in May. Please be safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Westchester Association of Chinese Americans (WACA)
